Number 1 

Massachusetts Outclassed 
by Superior Maine Team 

Hates Victor Over Bay Staters for 
the First Time in Years 

In their opening game of the season, 

the Massachusetts gridsters met drttat 
lt the hands of the Hates eleven last 
Saturday afternoon on Alumni Field by 
, _>,-,-() store. Both teams api>eared quite 
i-venly matehed during the first period 
when neither team was able to gain much 
rrotUK) consiste-iiUy. However, the tide 
.oofl changed in favor of Bates when 
Brown, one of the (iarnet's stars, drove 
„tt tackle for a touchdown after Foley's 
punt had been blocked 

During the third quarter, the Massa- 
chusetts offense failed to get under wa> 
again and Bates started another ofTen- 
nve, denting the state college line for 
,, insistent gains and climaxing the drive 
with a forward pass, Yalicenti to Kenni- 
sott, for 17 yards and another score. 
\ alicenti's successful drop kick after this 
, added an extra point to the total. 

\> Foley was about to kick at the start 
of the final quarter, the Bates forwards 
charged in on him, blocking the punt, 
and recovering the ball nearly on the 
Massachusetts goal line. After two line 
bucks, Chamberlain crossed the line for 
the third tally for Hates. The final 
touchdown CUM near the close of the 
gam* with McCarthy going across the 
line after a series of gains through the 
I!. iv State line. 

brown, Bornstein, and Chamberlain 
were outstanding for the winners in the 
lu( kfield, while Long and Berry were the 
Hates stalwarts in the line. The defen- 
sive end play of Dangelmayer ami

| Superior Team-Work and Organiza- 
tion of Second Year Men 
Disastrous to Freshmen 

Team-work won the annual freshman- 
I sophomore sixty man rope pull for the 
Inure experienced class of 1988 last 
Saturday afternoon after the Bates foot- 
ball game. This was the fourth consecu 
live time that the sophomore class has 
| won this inter* lass contest. 

\s soon as the starting gun was fired, 
I the sophomores got the jump on the 
Ive-.ulings and began a steady, systematic 
Ipull which was too much for the fresh- 
lint n. At no time did the freshmen gain 
lany ground and only occasionally were 
It hey able to work on even terms with 
■their rivals. When the first neophyte 
■entered the water there was a momentary 
[hold, but the sophomores soon hit their 
[heaving pull again and from then on the 
contest was one-sided. When the final 
|Kun went off, seventeen freshmen were 
[in the water. According to the new rules 
■which went into effect this year, all men 
pn the losing team had to go through the 
t»»nd, and so all the yearlings followed 
the rope through the shallow water and 
|niud which at present constitutes the 
liege pond. 
Norman Myrick Ml, who was in direct 
Charge of the rope pull, explained the 
rules of the contest before its start. 
I't'.fessor Curry S. Hicks was timer of 
Be event. The sophomores, captained 
Seymour B. Scott, were coached by a 
[•'legation of seniors, while the frosh 
aptain, Floyd O. Blanchard was in 
huge of the losing side, who were aided 
|n their efforts by members of the junior 


Important improvements on cam- 
pus, including marked progress on the 
Physical Education Building, newly 
graded lawns, and several other 
marked innovations caused much as- 
tonishment and favorable comment 
from the returning State College 

udents last week. 


116 Men, or 65 Per Cent of Fresnman 
Class, Accept Kidf 

In the double line of fraternity men 
which formed in front of Stockbridgc 
Hall after chapel Monday morning the 
hands of about 1 16 "pledges" were 
shaken in congratulation. This number 
is only slightly more than one-half the 
enrolment of men in the entering data, 
and it nutv be taken as an indication of 
the desirability of second term "rushing."

First Varsity Soccer 

Game Comes Saturday 

Fairly Large Squad Has Been 
Practicing Since Monday 

According to "Larry" Briggs, soccer 
practice this last week has been very 
rapid. "Larry" is extremely anxious to 
have the men know how to dribble well, 
and throughout the past week, the front 
line has been kept busy dribbling the 
ball into the goals. A great deal of atten- 
tion and time has also been given over 
to the backs who have been practicing 
lengthening their kicks. "Larry" has 
not failed to stress the technique dc 
manded in passing, heading, dribbling, 
shooting, and trapping. All of this 
minute preparation is in anticipation of 
the game with W.P.I, this coming 
Saturday which should be very close and 
therefore interesting. 

It is probable that the following men 
will start against Worcester Saturday: 

Jonzak, Koal; Northiott. halfback; Mitchell, 
halfback; Frost, outside; W'aski.-wi. z, Inside; 
Davis, outside; Hitchcock, inside. 

Following is the schedule for this fall.

Automobile Accident 

[As told by Warren W. Fabyan and 

Clijiord R, Fosmttt) 

( hir trip west was the' climax of a couple 
of yean of planning. ()ur object was to 
see the west and get summer employ incut 
in the wheat helds. Besides Tim Mink 
stein and us on the trip was Charlie- 
Clark '.'».{. After being out o| college l '" 
a week, we assembled at the Q.T.V. 
House for our journey. Tooling what 
money we had, we bought an old Ford 
and some- supplies. On the morning of 
June- 30, we started on our w.i\ . 

We went clown to West tic Id, where 
"Tim" bill goodbye to his folks, un- 
fortunately for the list time. Thence we 
went to Waterbury, Connecticut, across 
the Beat Mountain bridge, through New 

York and Pennsylvania, and clown to 

Wheeling, W. Va. There we took the 
National I'ike to Ohio. At St. Clairsville, 
lad., we ■topped lor repairs. In Duii- 
reath, lad., we met with an accident 
similar to the one in whit li "Mink" 
killed, when we were crowded oil t In- 
road into a Cttlvert, and we were- thrown 
out onto the tracks. A day required 
for repairs, and in our discouragement, 
WC nearly decided to return home. 

With just about enough moncv lelt to 
reach our destination, we continued, 
however, through Illinois and Missouri. 
In Kansas City we found that (he- nearest 

work was in Kllis, 330 miles farther. We 

were broke, and drove- much of the- way 
through intense heat, running on one- 
rim and three poor tires. We had had 
24 flat tire-s on the trip. 

Bad luck continued, for we had another 
ace ident before WC hit Kllis, when a front 
wheel came off and the connecting rod 
broke. We arrived in Lllis on June 2»i, 
just a week from Amherst. 

There was not much doing at Lllis, 
and there were hundreds looking for 
jobs. On Saturday, (lark got a job, and 
"Tim" was taken on Sunday. We- two 
finally got a job on Tuesday, but all we- 
could find was washing windows. The 
Ford was sold to get money for food. 

Discouraged, we two decided to return 
home. We were broke, looked like- bums. 
and were 2'.UHi miles from home. After

Construction Work on Physical Kdu- 
casion lluilding Shows Com- 
pletion Will COUM by Kaster 

Surprise al the progress oi construction 

ol the new Physical Education Building 
was prevalent as the students of Massa 
chusetts returned to campua this fall. 

The contractors are far ahead of m hediile, 
and present plans call for completion ol 
the building by Batter. 

At the present time, the- front and 
mam part ol the building is completed 
to above the- second storv windows, and 
it is nearly ready lor the- roof. The base- 
ball cage rise-s impressively behind and is 
read) foi the glass in the roof. The 
swimming pool is complete except for 

tiling. A month ahead ol the- plans, it in 
expected that the- roofs will be put on 
soon so that the- work on the interior can 
p roce e d during the winter. 

An actual view and trip through Un- 
building is much more impressive than 

any description or ground plan which 

can be give-n. A slight change in tin- 
original plans m. ikes the outer wall ol 
water-struck, or Harvard brick, which 
makes a better looking and more durable 

surf ace. 
If the building is completed l»\ Easter, 

all that will remain to do will be the 
installation of furnishings, such as lockers, 
shelves, and athletic equipment. With 
such a program, it t ee m e certain that the 
pr esent senior class will derive sonic 
bench) from the- building, at least to 
enjoy the swimming pool, before- they 
graduate. Next fall the building will be- 
in use- for all athle-tic programs. 

Student Body Welcomed 
by President Thatcher 

Faculty and Campus Changes and 

the Relationship between Students 

and Administration Subjects 

of President's Talk 

About 634 students thronged Bowkir 

Auditorium Wednesday alterne»on, Sept. 
24, for the first Assembly of the- year. 
President R. W. Thatcher, who con 

ducted the meeting, de v o ted his time to 
an enumeration of the many recent 
faculty and campus changes, a co mplet e 
discussion of which will appear in a 

forthcoming issue of this publication, and 
to an explanation of the relationship be- 

twe-e-n the student body and tin- sdminie 
trative officers. 

Among the several faculty changes, 
the President mentioned the loss of 
Major N. B. Briscoe. Major E. L. Hub 
bard. Prof, I.. R. Crose, and Dr. II. T 

Fernald. A new service, conducted l>\ 

Dr. E. J. Radcliffe, has been institute-d 

on the campus. I. is called the- Students 
Health Service, and its scope is "health 
insurance-, personal ami environmental." 
The campus changes spoken of included 

the- renovated dormitories, the- general 

im provemen t of College grounds by W. 
II Armstrong, and the- rapid erection of 

the Physical education Building. 

Introducing the- ente ri ng class to its 
position in this College the President 
devoted the sec on d part ol his talk to 
the- drawing of a parallel b etwe e n the- 
student body in its relation to the faculty 
and the- President in his relation to the 
T r u st ee s. In the- case of the- President, 

the Trustees may veto any act he may 

execute. In the- case- of the- student, the 

faculty is delegated a m easur e of sup*-r 

vision, and may annul any .u t erf the 
students that it sees fit. The- entering 
class has not joined a self-governing com 
munity but a community in which 
authority is vested m se v e ra l supervising 

elements. The closest one- of these ele- 
ments to the campus activities of t he- 
class of :il is the Senate-, and the- parallel 
above drawn applies also in this case 

The member! of the < lass may disregard 

the- rulings of the Senate, but they auto- 
mat icillv lose- their true- position in the 
College community.

Congratulations, 1934. Ye* will never regret that you haw chosen Massachusetts 
for your Alma Mater. Y..U are by SO* well acquainted with this college, its in- 
stitutions and its opportunities. Ahead of you are four vears of work and pleasure 
which VOU will never DC able to equal. We trust that you will make the most of your 
opportunities ... these four years in scholarship, athletics, and in acadennc a, 
A few words about how the CoUegiem may COOCera you are in order. First, re-

The Colktton welcomes you. 1984. May you, in your college career, prove that 
you are here for more than a good time and a little book learning, that college life 
is worth while as experience for life and its problems. May you become "Loyal Sons 
of Old Massachusetts." 


Is there any reason in the world why we can't cheer? Last Saturday's exhibition 
of college spirit was pitiful. It would disgrace a hick High School to sav nothing of 
what it does to the reputation of a college of six hundred students. After the BlSt 
five minutes of play there wasn't a single cheer. Occasionally a purely mechanical 
leader would direct the audience in an oral recitation of page 00 oi the Froth 'bible. 
Is that cheering? Is that supporting a team? Is that the way we show the boyt we 
appreciate their fighting a superior eleven? Is that school spirit? No. It isn't even 
the spirit of good sportsmanship. Hates, our opponent, was given one cheer, a 'short 
yell ' and then only after half the crowd had asked for it. 

What waf the matter? Who was to blame? Almost the same crowd that has 
backed the team the last few years was there, why didn't they yell like they used 
U>? I'rol.ablv there were a multitude of reasons win they didn't. Probably no single 
OBC wai to blame, but raterh the aggregate of them all. It was early in the college 
year, the freshmen were not very familiar with the cheers the upper classmen were 
Bj Hte re d , the day was hot. the game was dull, and the head cheer leader was absent. 
l t * i s „l,viously impossible to improve the weather or some of the other retarding 
factors, but many improvements can be made which will help save the college from 
a repetition of last week's episode. We .an improve the cheering and the cheer lead- 
ing ami the sooner we do, the sooner we shall have a winning team. 

The first step IIUtMOQ to produce organized cheering is the development of a 
competent cheering suit. At present we have no cheer leader, and the student 
must elect one without dcl.iv. It i ill then be up to this man to train his assistants. 
He will have t<> see that they look and act like cheer leaders, and that they keep 
their enthusiasm even when the odds are persistant^ against us. They will need 
considerable practice together and this necessitates an immediate start. They must 
learn to work together in exciting the crowd, and they must be synchronized so that 
the stands .an give a unified cheer. Formality has no place at a lootball game and 
the leaders will have to learn the nicknames of the players. A uniform costume is 
also necessary, and there is no excuse for not having one. Fraternity row can supply 
enough white llannels and sweaters to equip one hundred cheer leaders. Finally the 
leaders must learn enough sportsmanship to give our opponent! adequate cheers. 

Singing has never been a Massachusetts strong |H>int, but it was worse last week 
than ever before. It will have to be improved and can be done with just a little 
extra effort on the part of the stutlent body and some co-operation from the faculty. 
If the tang leader can have a chapel or assembly devoted entirely to singing and 
cheering the students .an get some very necessary practice. This is the only college 
in the country whose sons and daughters do not know its "alma mater." For the 
benefit of upper classmen who have lost their bibles the song is printed elsewhere 
in this issue. Let everyone cut it out and learn it. Both verses of it, and the next 
time we are asked to sing, let's ring. It would also help the singing if we could have 
a -axophone or some other instrument to carry the air without drowning the words. 
There arc enough musicians here to help us out in this respect. We might also learn 
and use 'There on the Field." It is a snappy song, well adapted for group singing, 
and appropriate for football games. 

One of the most necessary aids to improve our cheering and singing can be supplied 
by the Athletic Uffue. It is student bleachers. If there could be four hundred or so 
seats reserved lor students, and some one with authority present to see that only 
those who use student tickets are admitted, we would have a unified group. As it 
is now, townspeople, visiting high school pupils, anybody and everybody pile into 
the student section, and the result is that only one-third of the crowd before the 
leaders know the cheers or are interested enough to yell. A co mp a ct group of four 
hundred students, directed by capable, trained leaders, can make our singing and 
cheering of a collegiate grade and worthy of Massachusetts traditions. 

Let's all get together, faculty, athletic department, students and leaders, and give 
the team some loyal support. 


"Tim" Minkstein, captain-elect ol our 
1930 football team, will be missed this 
fall; not only as a potential leader of 
more than ordinary ability and one who 
would have bern both a /.alous as well 
as a jealous guardian of our rights; 
not only u i player oi better than 
average ability; not only .is an inspira- 
tion because u! his aggressiveness and 
workability; hut also as a friend. In 
the last analysis football means: — 
"Beat <>l all, the friendships sweet 

W« form with all the pals we meet." 
A summer in the wheat fields beckoned I 
to him as an opportunity to travel and | 
this desire for romance cost "Tim" his 
lite, He planned to come back to lead 
what undoubtedly will be a bitter than 
usual football eleven through one of its 
severest schedules. We can be grateful 
that he had his opportunity to roam and he was allowed to Like part in some 
of our athletic programs and leave with 
us memories of his ability, stick-to-itive- 
ness .mil his very real desire to win. 

Coflttng to us from Westfield, with; 
practically no athletic experience other 
than on independent teams in his home 
town, "Tim" tried his hand at all the 
■port! his freshman year Then followed 
two splendid years of athletic prowess; — 
two years as a regular tackle on the 
v.n -it s football team; a forward his 
junior year on the varsity basketball 
team; and lor two seasons as a candidate 
for track. 

Although in athletics all the year 
around, "Tim" found time to be a good 
student and to habitually make the 
honor roll, as well as to take an active 
part in student activities and as a mem- 
ber of the Senate. 

"Tim" can be remembered for his 
typical contributions to M.A.C. athletic 
history. As a member of the basketball 
Club last winter, in that never-to-be- 
forgotten game when the "Stars in 
Stripes" were 17 to 2 behind in Williams- 
town, they started a spurt that ended in 
a 33-31 victory, with "Mink" throwing 
the winning basket from mid-court with 
seconds left to play. Again last fall at 
the start of the final period of the Nor- 
wich game, "Tim" blocked a punt, with 
a great piece of individual work, that 
led to a 12-ti triumph. 

Up from the ranks, "Tim" joins that 
select group who. never having played 
football before coming to M.A.C, by 
reason of hard work and never giv ing up, 
made the team, ultimately to captain it. 
Always a fighter, "Tim" was amenable 
to discipline and would listen to reason. 
A rugged, well built, hard working- 
si rapper, one who 

"Though the palms of his hands did 
And he grew ragged, weary and 

swarthy, — 
Always walked like a man."

On February 1, 1038, Director Fred J 
Sievers took over the position of Dire, tor 
of the College Experiment Station h.-ie 
in Amherst. Exactly two years later, 
July 1, 1030, he was chosen as the suc- 
cessor to Dr. Marshall to be director of 
the Graduate School in addition to per- 
forming his duties at the Experiment 
Station. "Who's Who" cites him as an 
agronomist famous all over the country. 
With these things in mind, Ye Scribe 
thought that such a man might have 
some good ideas about carrying on a 
Graduate School so he decided to ask 
for an interview which was very will- 
ingly granted. 

Seated in a swivel chair before a roller- 
top desk, Mr. Sievers smiled as Ye 
Scribe entered the room. As he stood up 
Ye Scribe hastened to sav: 

"I am Ye Scribe, sir. Could you tell 
me something about your new position 
in the < .raduate School?" 

"Ye Scribe? Oh, yes! What would 
you like to know?" was the prompt reply. 
"Well, why should the Graduate 
School and the Experiment Station be 
connected?" epiizzed the Collegian's repre- 

"There is a rather close connection 
between the two," he replied. "Both 
are primarily interested in research and 
my intention is to make the connection 
between graduate students and professors 

"What are the opportunities open for 
a student interested in the type of gradu- 
ate work given here?" asked Ye Scribe. 

"Several industrial fellowships are at 
the present time available for students 
wishing to major in Dairying, Horticul- 
tural Manufactures, Farm Management, 
Agronomy and Home Economics besides 
the assistantships in many other depart- 
ments of the College as in Chemistry, 
Economics, English, and so on." 

"Will the Graduate School suffer much 
change by the recent changes in the 
undergraduate curriculum?" 

"Not very much. But any change in 
the undergraduate curriculum will natur- 
ally be reflected in the Graduate School, 
and it is to be hoped that eventually 
every department in the institution may 
be identified in its service with graduate 

"Do you think that the Graduate 
School will increase much in enrolment 
in the near future?" ventured Ye Scribe. 
"There seems to be no apparent reason 
for it. but, while this College can never 
hope to develop a (.raduate School as 
large as those connected with some other 
land-grant institutions, there is no reason 
why the quality of its product should not 
be equal to any, and to accomplish this 
in the future all that is necessary is to 
maintain the high standard that has been 
held ever since the Graduate School has 
been established."

The State University Proposal 

A proposal for the establishment of 
"University of Massachusetts" will prol. 
ably be voted on by the people of the 
State at the election in November, th 
preliminary steps for an initiative pet - 
tion having been taken already. The 
petition proposes that the Universit. 
shall "provide . . . the means and oppoi- 
tunity for obtaining general and pro 
fessional education of a high grade, en- 
tirely free of any charge for tuitioi 
books, paper, materials or supplies." It 
is quite probable that so appealing a 
I imposition may receive the necessar\ 
majority of votes at the election. If so, 
the Legislature of 1081 must take some 
action to satisfy the purposes of tie 
petition. If whatever action it takes i- 
satisfactory to the petitioners the matter 
is completed. If not, it may be referred 
back for another popular vote at another 

Some of the details of the proi>osal, Si 
reported in the newspapers, are unsounl 
educationally and others would be evi 
difficult and expensive enterprises for the J 
State to undertake. Much of the desired 
objective could be reached much more 
economically by mollification or enlarge 
nicnt of this College. If, on the other 
hand, a University of Massachusett-- 
were to be established in the eastern part 
of the State, as is said to be the purpose 
of this proposal, the future of this College 
would be altered in several ways. In 
other states, which are much larger in 
area and in the proportions of public 
funds which they spend for state-sup 
ported education of collegiate grade, the 
presence of rival institutions has been a 
source for constant friction, although it 
has usually resulted in increased public 
interest in and support for both institu- 
tions. Hut it is to be hoped that no such 
situation will arise in Massachusetts. 

One result which is almost sure to] 
come from the agitation for a Universit) 
of Massachusetts will be a clearer defini 
tion of the functions and duties of our I 
own College, to which I am looking for- 
ward with very great confidence.

Decides Columbus Day 
Annual Mountain Day 

Administration Designates October

\. \i Monday, Octobet 13, has been 
officially designated as Mountain Day. 

Owing to the farts that college opined a 
week later than usual this tail, ami that 
Mountain Day must closel) billow 
Columbus Day in Order that nature's 
glories not be past, I he adniiin t la 
tion has decided on Monday lor the 

obsei v ance ol t Ins day. 

Plans this year include no offfc ial 
< i ion on Mount Toby. The faculty 
M«-i;tw.i...|.< Club has scheduled . trip 

to Mount Monadnock, and other groups 
are .it libeltv to hike Mount Toby, 

Mount Lincoln, the rlolyoke Range, « 
any other place where the) ma) commune

Hall will put up lum Ins lor anyone 
eating there if she is notified in advance. 

Mountain Day was Inst hell on < >. I 
12, 1023, at the tletlii at ion ol the fire 

tower on Mount Toby. Lor several 

years, it has been broached in facult) 
disCUSSkmS that Mountain Dav be re

this idea has gone into effect, probabl) 
permanently. If Columbus \^yy comes 

in the middle of the Week, it will well 
serve the purpose of Mountain \>.\\. but 
it is unfortunate that both this vear and 

next the day will be observed ob Monday, 
and therefore nearly e v er y o ne will profit 

by tin extra day ami go home.

begging the Sophs to take their quarters

As Ye Scribe was strolling down town 
the other night, he saw a familiar figure 
ambling and rolling along the street 
towarels him. It was good old Dean 
burns himself. Yes, it was none other 
than the Dean of Smith. Mt. Holyoke. 
M.S.C. and Amherst and former Harvard 
educator. Being friends of long standing 
(Ye Scribe met the venerable Dean 
Mountain Day way back in the dim past 
of his freshman yean, the Dean anel Ye 
Scribe saluted each other cordially and, 
as customary, shook hands heartily. 

"Well, Dean," greeted Ye Scribe, 
"how have you been lately?" 

"Fine," was the quick reply. "And 
how have you been yourself?" 

"The same," answered Ye Scribe. 

"Say, old friend," put in the Dean, 
"when are you going to have Mountain 
Day at the Slate College?" 

"1 hear they're going to have it CM. 
1'i when they celebrate Columbus Day" 

"What! Columbus Day? Why there 
won't be anyone .iron. id the campus, will 

there? Won't everybody be going home?" 
"It seems that way," Ye Scribe has 
tened to answer, "but it alto seems that 
the administration wants to have it that 

"But what's the use of having it it no 
one will go?" he asked. Then he added, 
"Ami I was planning to talk to the 
biggest crowd that ever went to a Moun- 
tain Day. Perhaps I won't go now." 

"Don't talk that way." comforted Ye 
Scribe. "You'll have to be there if the 
I )ay is going to be a lUCcess. Your annual 
Mountain Top Oration has always been 

the leading attraction of the day."

October 13 will be Mountain Day. Upon this announcement we hear many un- 
favorable .omm.nts concerning the fact that everyone will go home and on the 
legality of October 1". as a holiday. 

In the last analvsis. there is little reason why Mountain Day should not be Mon- 
day. No rules recp.ire having Mountain Day at all. And of course, having the day 
on'a holiday snswen the demand and avoids losing a day of the fall term, which is 
already a week shorter this year. Hence the question can be argued all day from the 
standpoint of the administration, ami their arguments are sound. 

Still, the undergraduate body feels that it has been cheated. We make no reference 
to tradition, for tradition holds no significance for us. ('.ranted that Mountain Day 
has often been misappropriated, there are many who look forward to Mountain 
Day as a respite from the labors of college a day in which to enjoy the pleasures 
of nature. Yes, we can do that any Saturday or Sunday, but there is not the stimulus 
which an official Mountain Day celebration can give us. 

We rise to the heights of optimism. Mountain Day is an instituion which has 
In-en very enjoyable in years past. We plead, "Give us a real day off in which to 
observe Mountain Day." We work hard enough to make up for it anyway 

The reputation of a student-body de- 
pends on the conduct of the non-students 
who attend its functions. The fuss 
raised by two or three drunken town boys 
at the "Nightshirt Parade" will offer the 
Amherst Record (the town weekly) an 
excellent opportunity to make caustic 
remarks on the general disrespect for 
law anel order on the part of the students 
at the State College (they will probably 
say "Aggie"). If they told the truth 
and accused the "townies" they would 
probably lose a few subscriptions and 
anyway drunkenness on the part of 
students is more interesting to read 
about other people get drunk too often.

tionary, is "the education together 
of persons of different sexes or ract - 
As commonly used it refers only to j. 
education of the sexes. 

Theoretically, such joint educai 
may be effected in two different w. 
One involves joint presence of the 'a 
sexes upon the same campus, but Viig 
differing class room instruction 
curricula for the two sexes. Such 
education corresponds to the arrai. 
meat by which different colleges. - 
as a college of arts, a college of law 
college of medicine, etc., exist upon • '., 
same campus, but with student bo 
that are pursuing separate curricula. T 
other type ot co-education consists 

the organization of curricula and c 

room instruction for a definite educatk 
purpose to which any qualified pet 

may be admitted, regardless of K* 
would seem that, in these times of "eq 

rights,'' any educational institution > , : J 
ported by public funds, except tli 
which i.ain for gpecial service to wl 
only cm -■ \ is admitted such as arm' 
navy school.-, must be co educational 

this second sen-c. 

It is quite another question whet In 

publicly-supported institution should i 

vide gpecial curricula of instruct i 

which are open only to students ul 
sex, or should provide facilities 

opportunities for one sex which arc 
open to the other. 

This College is truly co-cducat ion. 
the sense- that all of its courses ol st 
are open to any properly qualified stud' ■ 

regardless of sex. of course, some 

our courses, a-- those in animal husfaan 
or home economics, are- of interest to ail 
elected usually by students of only M 
sex; but thus far this state institution I 
not undertaken to provide any "met 
education" or "women's education" wl; 
is not open to any person of the ot'n 
sex who desires to enter it. 


We find Miss Callond no longer in the Dean's office. Perhaps she could no longer 
accept with a straight face those- stale excuses for absences and tardiness. Why is 
it necessary for anyone to be forced to swallow these stories of oversleep, sickness, 
dentist appointments, etc, which are brought in to the Dean's office? 

t'nlimitcd cuts are now offered to students who attain averages of over 85 per 
cent. They deserve them but the stuelent boely as a whole desires more cuts. There 
is no sense in re qu ir in g every freshman and sophomore to attend every class unless 
excused. Ten percent cuts for juniors and seniors is really only a few. 

In other colleges, we find that practically unlimited cuts are offered to everyone 
in all classes. There is no checkup until several cuts in succession have been taken. 
The administration in those colleges trusts the stuelents and believe that they realize 
that an education is their reason for being in college. Classes are generally attended, 
but if not, no fictitious excuse must be offered Such is our idea of liberality in edu- 

Such a radical idea for this conservative tollegc would be promptly vetoed. Yet 
the present system is entirely too restricting, and requires either great conscientious- 
ness or strong bluffing. No cuts for two years is absolutely too high an ideal. It is 

What is the remedy? We suggest the following: ten percent cuts or freshmen, 
fifteen percent for sophomores, and unlimiteds for juniors and seniors. Are we not 
old enough to know that class attendance is a requisite for education? Why must 
we be restricteel by a narrow and unreasonable cut system? 

Last year the class of *31 thought it 
was establishing a useful precedent by 
dashing out of Chapel before the seniors; 
this year they have to wait until all three 
{lower classes have left the hall before 
they can regain the open air. Pretty- 
soon the seniors will try to revive an old 
College custom. 

Omega Chi and Tri Sigma, the two 
athletic clubs in the W.A.A., issueel bids 
last Thursday for freshman pledges for 
their respective clubs. Following this 
campaign, preliminary practice for tourn- 
aments in soccer, basketball and possibly 
track will make up a full outdoor pro- 
gram of sports for the co-eds. Riding 
and bowling for the girls featured this 

Miss Mary Clark, former graduate of 
Smith College and of the Graduate 
School at B. V., spe>ke at morning Cha|>el 
last Friday morning, as one of the travel- 
ling staff of the Student Volunteer 
Movement on the subject of International 
Independence. Miss Clark met groups of 
students for personal conferences during 
the day. 



We do not object to 2 in 1 in shoe 
polishes but is it the nice thing to com- 
bine two holidays? It is almost profane 
to combine the birthday (supposedly a 
joke) of the man who "sailed the ocean 
blue" with a lot of walking up and down 
hill. We aren't especially worried about 
the reverence due Columbus but think 
of us, one holiday instead of two. (That 
word's cropping up a lot.) Still if we all 
spend Mountain Day at home, as we 
probably will, there will be a drastic- 
saving in the cost of supplying hot tlogs 
and cider to Dean Burns and the others. 

Fourteen senior girls spent last weekend 
on Mt. Toby at the Girls Cabin with 
Miss Margaret Hamlin as chaperon. 
Favorable atmospheric conditions and 
board beds made a lasting impression 
upon the campers. Clear moonlight and 
sunlight through tinteel autumn leaves— 
the memory of these will remain longest.

To the Kditoi'of the Colttgian: 

In spite- of the inanv statements which 
were quite true, and the obvious attempt 

at fairness it is clear that the writer e>f 

last week's editorial "Let's Cheer" tailed 
to consider the situation Iron) both sides. 

In the tirst place he gays that a uniform 
costume is n e ce ss ar y. He then goes on to 

sa\ thai while llanncls and red sweaters 

could van •'• | ^ 1n besuppliedbj fraternity 

row. Is fraternity row expo ted to supply 
uniforms for the football, baseball, or 
basketball teams:" I >i does a man |>la\ 
on the team tSTO \eats uiiliout a uniform 
in order to receive one his junior yeai so 

that he ma) quit and s/ear it around 

l 1 1- lei the present system the cheer 
leading ■quad, such as it is. has absolutel) 
no st. mdi nn as a n< ognised activity. The 
fen men who do u<> tmt for it are forced 

lo supply their own costumes for two 

year-. If they should be elected head 

.hiii leader in their junior yen the) 

receive a ssreater, whereupon the) im 
mediate!) retire Irom the scene. In fad 

the head cheer leaders are not I he only 

ones addicted to that pastime, for during 

the Middlebtir> game last \e.n onl\ the 

freshman members wen preei n< I he 

fact that the head cheei leader was not 

present at the opening game thig year 

was due tO his failure to return to colli ge. 
This was. 01 at ha-t should ha\e been, 

known by the Senate and some provision 

made at least a week belore the game, tO 

Ml the vacancy. Nothing was done. 
hosrever, to till the position. In view ol 

these above lads, and admitting that 
the cheering was |M>or at the game, niav 
I ask just how good it would have been 
had no one shown up at the gaSBC tO 
lead the songs or chBSTS? Fot instance, 
how good would a football team be if no 
one knew what |>osition he was to play, 
or whether he really had a position? 
What if they just came around becanSC 
they knew that there was a g a m e and 
because it was obvious that someone had 
to play? 

In conclusion I would like to say that 
until cheer leading becomes a recognised 
activity, backed by the Athletic Depart- 
ment, the student Ixxly, a little time and 
money for training and outfitting a squad, 
the cheering will always be mediocre. We 
can improve ui>on it and we most cer- 
tainly should hut you can't get some 
thing for nejthing.

thinks is a world's record for distance of 
"jumps" between games of golf during 
the past summer. As incidents in his 
trip to South America and later to the 
far west, he seized such opportunities .i- 
offered to play golf on widely separated 
courses. His record, for which he chal- 
lenges conspetition, includes six consecu- 
tive rounds of golf played respectively at 
Portland. Maine; Valparaiso, Chile; 
Balboa, Canal Zone; South Hadl.v. 
Massachusetts; Anaconda, Montana, and 
Amherst, Massachusetts. No two of the 
successive gaSBSS were played on courses 
nearer together than two t h ou s a nd miles

To our grand old alma mater- 
Let our song resound anew. 
Cheer, hoys, cheer for old Massachusetts, 
(ine our college three times three; 
Sons forever of the old Hay State, 
Loyal sons, loyal sons are ice. 

For thy COtorS pure and bright, 
For thine OWN Maroon and White, 
GhrioUS victories we crave, 
Symbols of thy spirit brave. 
May they long in triumph WOM 
All thy sterling worth reveal, 
Grant US nobler, manlier zeal, 
So though borne by time's command 
Far beyond thy sheltering hand, 
Still devoted sons we'll stand, 
Ma-a-a-a-a-as-ai hit setts.

Last Thursday, 74 men reported t 

"Chick" McGeoch on Alumni Field i. 
freshman football. The number of me 
reporting is real I) remarkable in view I 

the fad that the average number <■ 
freshmen who went oat for football in 
recent years averaged about 30 men. To 

say that "Chick" is greatly pleased 

putting it mildly, since in rough figure - 

there IS a little less than one man out • 

every two freshmen reporting for prat 

tice. McGeoch has divided the squad 
into six teams and plans to run off intci 
team contests until the men know the 
plays and until "Chick" knows how good 
the men are. Towards the end of tie 
season, the yearlings will be matched 
against some school teams in this vicinit\ 
in order to get some experience which 
will undoubtedly prove to be of inesti- 
mable value next year when they seek to 
create high prestige for Massachusetts 
football teams.

[apan! Sapporo! The itudenti ol 

I AC. hear those words and itnniedi- 

ely, it they are majoring in horticulture 
landscape gardening remember all the 

[aponicums" around campus in the 
form <it plant life. Hut to certain older 

embers <>" our campus these words 

injure up very pleasant associations 
which this college lias enjoyed in years 

ist with the- Japanese students and tluir 

college at Sapporo. Just what this con 

ton is thai has had mh!i a profoundly 
tliuntial result "ii <>ui campus no one 
hi better relate than Dr. William P. 
brooks. Professor M.A.C. 

Dr. Brooks tells the following story 
which creates in the student at M.A.C. 

wonder and a thrill that his Alma 

Mater to be, has had such international 


Vesso, an island off tin- northernmost 

si oi Japan lies in an approximate 

latitude <>f 41 to 48 d egre es . To the 

|apanese who were a tropical people, this 

island was always considered as too cold 

iiid inhospitable to support either homes 

or crop-'. Yesso was therefore used 

chiefly for fishing headquarters during 

summer with only two small villages 

on its southern i oast ■ 

Between the dates I860 and 1870, the 

ople ot the country had been practi- 

< ally under the feudal system. A military 

ler had come in to rule in place of the 

Emperor and had under him his "Damio," 

the teudal lords, who in turn wire over 
the fighting im '" W*d beneath them were 

the co mm on peasantry. However a deep 

love Of country prevailed and the military 

a, realising the position ot the people, 

; >it i- of their own inability to take up 

any other trade, volunteered to disarm 

and refuse to fight. The Lmperor was 

tortd and a much more satisfactory, 

democratic government was established. 

This whole movement was stimulated 
by the visit of Commodore Perry to 
Japan in 1857. Lp to this time, Japan 
\\.n\ refused to have any thing to do with 
foreign countries save through certain 
treaty trade ports. Commodore Perry 

knocked at the doors of Japan, sent 
ny presents to the governing p owe rs 
and tried to show just what Western 
• ;v ilizatinn was. He even brought with 
him a miniature railroad to make known 
to them the transportation facilities 
whkh existed in the West. At first the 

Japanese were not very enthusiastic 
about these ideas but final ly a treaty 
was made with them permitting freer 
trade in certain porta. 

' ieneral Kunxla. was one of the promi- 

t men among the Japanese at that 
tune to encourage the new democratic 
movement and other beneficial changes. 
In the earlier 70's he decided with others 
from what they had learned from the 

tern world that the island of YeSSO 
must be really in a favorable location for 
agricultural development, (ieneral Ku- 
roda was put in the charge of investigation 

■ is matter and to do it most thorough- 
ly he started out on a trip to the various 

itries in the world to study and talk 

over just what conditions he was to face. 

In the United States he visited the 

various Land Grant Colleges and deter- 

mined that of all the places and institu- 

- he had investigated that what he 
I in Massachusetts was nearest com- 

I pie to conditions on the island of 
Vesso. Accordingly the Japanese govern* 
nw lit decided that they wanted President 
William Clark, the first president of 
M AC, and a skillful and popular Colonel 
W the war on the Union fortes, to go 
to Japan and organize an agricul- 

il (ollege on this island.

Good Morning Chapels 

Promised For Future 

Professor Kebert, Mr. Tylow and 

Professor lliftelow to Appear 

at Chapel 

The next lew mornings chapels promise 
to be interesting and enjoyable affairs. 
Upperclaasmen will remember the organ 
recital given List year by lYufgssui 
Homer kebert of Amherst College and 

how the usual drab morning < hapcl was 
enlivened by his playing. ProffSBOff 

kebert will play for another < hapcl this 

Friday, October 17. Professor Kebert 

has been interested in music and has 

taken charge ot the college choir since his 

stay in Amherst. He has traveled nun h 
and is an artist of real ability. 

< Mi Monday following another music 
treat is in store when Marc T\luw, 

supervisor of music of Amherst schools, 
will play several violin selections. Mr. 

Tylow also played at chapel last year and 
was much enjoyed. 

This strengthening of the chapel exer- 
cises is an attempt on the part of the 
college authorities to increase the interest 

in morning chapels which as a whole 

have been disliked by the student bodv. 
In the next two chapel meetings Professor 
Bigelow will lead in mass sinning of the 
school BOngS. To aid in this innovation, 
the Collegian will < ontain the song which 
will be emphasized at the follo wing meet 

ing. I.ast week the Collegian pr i n te d the 

"Alma Mater," this week "There on the 
Field." It has been BOggested that the 
students either learn these stan/as 
thoroughly or take a clipping to the sink- 
ing exercises. Student souk leaders will 
assist Professor Btgeiow. 

Last Saturday, the Massachusetts crosa 

country team lost to the Amherst College 
harriers on its own course by a score of 

16-42. The only Interesting feature of 

the rai e was the batt le between ( arpenter 

of the state College team and Eddy of 
Amherst, the latter barely rtOStng out 
"( arp" to win fourth place. Poor con- 
dition and lack of running power were the 

two big ta< tors re sp onsible for the Maasa 
chusetts defeat. Four Amherst runners, 
Opper, Morse. Chase, and Eddy wen 

the first four men to i the line. Opper 
finishing about two minutes before 
Carpenter who came in fifth. Wells of 
Amherst was sixth and (apt. McGuckian

comments of '•Wheat!" Perhaps childish is a more applicable term for these pen- 
ances. Should our fair coeds be subjected to torture, not enjoyed by the men .in-

\„ inquiry found that such penal, us were imposed for trivialitie., such as not

U?e Scribe 

Demanding overnight ac c o mm o da tion. 
at a strange fraternity house and then 
asking the gene ro us host for an interview 
was Ye Scribe's experience on his visit 
to New York last week-end. A Creen- 
wich Villager almost the entire year, 
"Pat' Moran, former president of the 

Student ( of the School of Com- 
merce at New York University, waa quite 

willing to answer any question regarding 
N.Y.U. that Ye Scribe might ask. Need 
less to say, "I'at" was ver> well-infornied 

on everything concerning his School 

which, of course, made the conversation 

very interesting. 

'About how large is your institution?" 

asked Ye Scribe. 

"Iii the whole University there are 

more than thirty thousand students. 
Eight thousand of these are in the School 
of Commerce which, you may know, i- at 
Washington Square." 

"How do you like i, here-?" purs,,..! 
Ye Scribe. "Don't you think you'd like 
to attend a smaller college awa\ from 

the city?" 

"No. 1 like it very much. I wouldn't 
go to a small college on a bet. look 
what you miss when vou're away Ironi 

the «'„>. Besides, th. teaching staff ia 

perhaps much better than what they 
have in most small cdtegl 

"How do fraternith - rati at N.Y.U.?" 
was Ye Scribe's next question. 

"Very highly. There are not as many 
at Commerce as there are at I'niversity 

Height, the Univerdty total is aeventy 

but they're a big factor here just the 

same, Most of the bin men are fra- 

teruitv men. As far B. the sororities are 
concerned, they get along very well. 

"Do they have a K ,M, d arrangement of 

.lass hours for the student.?" 

"I'll sa\ so! Lots of students have no 

.lasses on Friday or Saturday, a thing 

which allows then, to work two davs a 
week. The reason for that is that we 
are permitted to take courses at night. 
The evening achool has the same courses. 
In other rcs|>e(ts. though, one may have 
a schedule that has many bad points 
such as scattered hours. I'sually, von 

.an arrange ■ verj convenient program 
with plentv of time to study and ample 

1 -isitre for sports and other things." 

"How do the co-eds rate?" questioned 
Ye Scribe. 
"Just ao-and-so; but a p*"! number of 

men students no out with them. Some. 
of course, are prett) nice." 

•| suppose all you !»>vs are cheering 

hard for the football team this \e,r. 

commented Y. Scribe. 

"Well, it will all turn out in this v\av: 

Notre li.ime will beit all but Carnegie 
lech which in turn will be beaten by 

N.Y.U. Nothing leaa than a national 
championship this v. 

"believe it or not!" chimed in Ye 

Scribe to make the story sound believe

To the Editor of the Collegian: 

Alt.,- being in loo.- one- month the 
ne-w schedule of hours, wh.-ie-liv e-verv 
thing during the day is shifted hall an 
hour ahead, presents manv problems ul 

adjustment.. We maj become- accua 

touted to the- new system, but in manv 
wav - i, i- awkward. 

We believe that the new schedule s/aa 
put into effect in order that morning 
chapel exert ises would no, be s () dread, d. 
()„ that acore, the idea is satisfactory. 

However, it would seeui that the abolish 
me n, ..I compulsory chapel and the ie 
,e niion ol the old schedule would ' 
been a better solution to the problem. 

With ,l,e abolition of assemblies, there 
is omitted the- opportunity of transacting 

. la-- business a, short no,i. e. 

At the present time, the- new si he dill. 

requires the- attendance e>t all dining 
h.,11 men .,, chapel exer, its. Although 
the fault lies with those delinquents who 
a. always late, it is th.- waitera who are 

handicapped, tor the) have- no time to 
se-t the table-, Complete their work, and 
attend ehapel. 

\n even greater problem is presented 
in athletics. With classes ending on 

some .lav- , ( t hve- o'clock, the net Io-- m 

lootball practice <»ve-r last year is more 

than two hours per man e-.n h week. 
Football is a team game-, and little cafl 
be- done with short t ice-s. Daylight 
is al-o essential, and late-r when flood 
lights are used, practices will be un-ali- 
factorv. Several of the football men 
wedk (OT ,'ieir meals, and these jobs re

after five, rush through an i n a deq uate

the situation. Supper at half past si\

being spared l>\ the Alumni Office to 
make iliis informal dance a memorable 
climax <>i the day, both for the students 
and for the alumni. Attention isespei ially 
called i<> the facl this is to be pri

on Homecoming l>.r> so thai 1 1 • * - alumni

excel lenl band Irom Pittsfield has been 
secured to furnish the musk. This out

has .i bag full ol songs, novelties and fun. 
None other than "Breeay" Bartsch is in 
charge <>i the decorations and it is said their color will surpass that <>i the 
Military Ball where "Breexy" made a 
name t'>r himself. Bartsch's new motto 
is "Bigger and better posters." 

Last year's seniors are especially ex 
p»i ted to be on 1 1 1« - < ampus in lull ion e. 
In 1929 more than 250 alumni returned 
for this occasion. Tickets lor the dance 
.ind information about other arrangements 
may be secured Irom the Alumni Office 
«,i from the Informal Office. Chaperones 
from Smith, transportation, .m<l other 
details are being prepared for. After the 
game receptions, smokers, and other gel 
togethers will l><- li*-l<l .it the Memorial 
Building and at the fraternity bouses. 
Meals for the alumni will be served from 
the cafeteria upstairs in the Dining Hall. 

As was done last year, a cup will be 
awarded by the Alumni Association to 
the Iraternity or sorority bouse having 
the neatest and moat attractive appear- 
ance to homecoming alumni. A com- 
mittee ot judges, to be announced next

vicinity. Class six, composed of junipers, 
provided the most interest and excite

jumps a ritler was thrown. The interest 
of the crowd for the other events in which 
horsemanship counted was also high. 1 he 
show was a success and the contestants 
and officers of the military department 
are eagerly looking forward to those 
which will follow. The following is a list

Many Reasons Given I'ro and Con 
for Changing Name of Institution 

Alumni <>t Massachusetts Agricultural 
College have expressed an opinion about 

changing the name of I he college. In m 

enthusiastic response to ■ survey, author 
ised and conducted b\ the Associate 
Alumni ol M.A.c. two thuds ot the 

alumni replav ing favoi a i bangs ol name 
This sentiment in favor of a change in 
name is emphatically voiced l>\ men 
graduating during the last eighteen yeara, 
The oldei graduates atere more retuctaal 
to make a change. Considered b) d ec a des , 

the number of alumni replying to the 
survey, who vveie in tavoi ol i hanging 
the name, and the percentage ol aliiiiim 
favoring the change ware as follows: '71 

through M. ft, or 2ii percent; '89 through 

<ll, 1 I. or II peteent ; *99 through '<>b 
.ill, ot M pen cut; tO through 'II, .'f'.i 

or 46 percent; '12 through "21, 1 1'.), or 
80 percent; "-'2 through '.to, 27S, or «M> 
pert ent 

A ureal variety of reasons are given by 
the alumni as to whv tin- change is tin BS 
sary (and also whv it is BOt), Some d 
the stronnest and most common argu- 
ments advanced for a change of name 

ate as follows; li the present name is 

narrow and misleading; (2) it handicaps 

graduates seekuiK employment in Othei 
than agricultural pursuits; (.'{i it does not 

indicate tin- real scope of the college; 

(I) undergraduate enrollment in agricul- 
tural ionises is small; ( .">' the State needs 
an institution wheie its \oiiih m.iv senile 

general education at a low coat; (ft) the 

chartM of the College implies that the 
field of the College should be broader 
than agriculture; < T » the present work 
and scope of the College is broader than 
its name; (Xl the college has been holding 
out against a liberalizing tendeni y as to 
name, which tendency has already re- 
sulted in (hanging the name of other 
state Colleges; (9) Ike present name is 
too long. 

Similarly, some of the strongest and 
most common arguments advanced for 

retaining the present aameare: (I) there 
,ne already enough so (.died liberal 

Colleges in .Massai husctts; (2) .M.A.C is 
well and favorably known under its 
present name; (3) there is no need of a 
change in name if the c o llege is to be 

fundamental!) aKii< uttural; (4) the < ollege 

is rated high by Othei institutions; (5) 
MAC. is judged by its men rather ill. in 
by its name; (•'■< graduation from MA < 

carries prestige in sciential and agri<ul i lt< l«s

to the name w lui h the colle ge should 

bear, and they voiced a strong approval

Freshman pledgee to the two athletic 
teams. Tri Si^ma, and Omega Chi clashed 
in a basketball tournament last Wednes- 
day evening in the Drill Hall court. The 
score stood 14 to HI in favor of Tri- 
Sigmi following a dose and exciting 
contest. "Larry" Brign s was referee. 
Besides the competition on the floor, the 
two supporting audiences rivaled each 
other in songs and cheers. Leaders in 
these were Elisabeth Barry "81, Omega 
Chi; and Tri Sigma, Mildred Twiss "X\ 
and Muriel Ashley '34. The entire event 
was a snappy intimation of the keen com- 
petition in tournaments between the two 
teams which are to follow during the

Using brute force as its battering ram, 
the Stockbridge Aggies set back the 
Cathedral High gridsters last Friday 
afternoon at Springfield with a 7-0 score. 
This win by Stockbridge brought to a 
dose the thirteen game winning streak 
which had been associated with the 
Cathedral eleven since 1H28. It also 
ended a long winning streak of thirteen 
games and three ties at home for the 
Cathedralitea that started in the early 
part of the W27 football season. 

The Sto ckbrid ge Aggiea strode down 
the field in one period, up in the next 
and every time they got in sight of their 
objective, they were turned back by a 
stalwart line from the Springfield High 
School. However, in the third quarter, 
Skelton did manage to break through the 
Cathedral line and score the only touch- 
down of the game.

Once upon a time, children dears, 
Eohippus and the Mangle Worm were 
walking along exchanging kicks and 
gossip as was their wont. At this exciting 
point in our narrative, they saw little 
Miss Muddle slowly dissolving into tears. 

"Tsk! Tsk!" declared Fohippus gravely, 
"whatever can the matter be? Tell 
Uncle Hippo all about it." He blew her 
nose violently on his coat sleeve and 
kissed her tears away while the Mangle 
Worm ran for the smelling salts as he 
was feeling rather faint. 

(I»e sure to miss this grip(e)ing cereal 
in next week's Collegian.) 

The hard-working student janitors of 
Stockbridge Hall claim that four out of 
every five candy wrap|>ers passed over 
the counter at the College Store find their 
way to the floors of Stockbridge Hall. 

Military has degenerated or the qual- 
ity of students has improved since we 
were being trained as cannon fodder. 
We have watched, and listened to, hours 
of military drill, but in this time all the 
men together did not get as much advice 
and instruction as we did in a single hour. 
We were lectured by everyone from the 
Majors down to the seven other members 
of our squad but even now, in spite of 
the statement in the College Catalogue, 
we could not qualify as a "non-commis- 
sioned officer of cavalry." 

Some classes have already been beset 
by the adversities of hour-examinations. 
Isn't it a relief to know that "grades 
represent effort rather than ability, and 
information repeated rather than ab- 
sorbed"? Cnless you received an unfair 
grade this line of reasoning probably will 

not appeal to you. 

Something must be done about the 
traffic situation; it is impossible for two 
groups of people, each group four abre.iM. 
to pem 00 our sidewalks without the rude 
and brutal shock of violent physical con- 
tact. Politeness does not work, for the 
person who steps to one side is brusquely 
pushed all the way off the walk. 

Prcxy's unprecedented feat of playing 
golf around the Western Hemisphere has 
appeared in the sporting section of the 
Springfield I'nion. We maintain that 
the drawing of the golfer in the cartoon 
is not an accurate likeness. 

No one can beat us to declaring that 
the knowledge of how to manipulate a 
tractor is an essential to a farmer but 
prospective tillers of the soil should not 
be allowed to get into the habit of driving 
their machines under classroom windows 
as the\ are learning to do in the field 
behind the new Hort. Lab. 


lj>e Scribe 

"It pays to advertise" is an old saw, 
but from the results of the College ex- 
hibits this year both on the Campus and 
in Mechanics Building in BoetOO it 
seems that the "Ad" Club's slogan is 
still a significant phrase if we are to 
pay any attention to the utterances of 
such noted men as Payson Smith, Com- 
missioner of Education, Dr. Arthur W. 
Gilbert, Commissioner of Agriculture, 
and Charles A. Nash, General Manager 
of the Eastern States Exposition. All 
voiced the same opinion that these 
exhibits, besides being unique, were the 
best ways of showing to the people of 
the Commonwealth the work that is 
being carried on at this institution. 

Hut, according to Mr. Hawley, College 
secretary, from whom Ye Scribe gathered 
all this information, the work was of 
large proportions. Mr. Hawley, by the 
way, was the chairman of the committee 
in charge of the exhibits. Regarding the 
Boston exhibit, Ye Scribe asked the 

"What composed the Boston exhibit?" 

"We had four booths at Boston: one 
each for the Social Science, Physical and 
Biological Science and Home Economics 
divisions, one for the Agriculture and 
Horticulture divisions combined and one 
which contained a panorama of the 
Campus and a map of the State. The 
panorama for the last was painted by 
Reinholt while the map of the State 
showing graphically were the alumni and 
students of the College hailed from was 
done by Raphael Saraceni "M). The 
whole thing represented a good amount 
of work." 

"How long did it last?" put in Ye 

"Two weeks; from Sunday, September 
2S to Saturday, October 11. It was 
estimated that in the time we hat! the 
exhibit in Boston, five hundred thousand 
people passed it." 

"What booth attracted the most 
attention from those who stopped to 
look at the exhibit?" 

"The Social Science booth seemed to 
attract most of the people who were very 
surprised to learn that the College offered 
so many courses in that field. One man 
who spent at least an hour in the Social 

Science group later tamed out to be a 

prominent man well-known throughout 
the State. Many stopped to read the 
papers written by the students." 

"What is your personal comment on 
the whole thing?" concluded Ye Scribe. 

"This: in general, the exhibit was not 
only attractive but showed in an interest- 
ing way the work being carried on at the 
College. It brought the College to the 
attention of the people in an intelligent 
way never known to them before." 

We would like to know if the S.S.A. 
students finally managed to crash the 
gate at the Amherst Theater Saturday 


In accordance with the idea suggested 
in the Collegian a few weeks ago, a re- 
served student cheering section of five 
hundred seats will be roped off at the 
Worcester Tech game Saturday. No one 
but students with Student Activities 
tickets will be allowed in this section. It 
is requested that all student co-operate 
with the AthL-tic Department in this 
endeavor towards good cheering. 

If you wish a pleasant half hour of 
discission go to the Library and ask why 
the American Mercury is not to be found 
upon its shelves. 

The freshmen are so damned conscien- 
tious: they are not going to run the risk 
of social ostracism by those who believe 
that all inane college traditions arc an 
aid to building up the moral fibers. 

As the freshmen see the Horseshow: 
"What time is the Horseplay this after- 
"It ain't a Horseplay; it's a Horsemeet."

resulting from the preparation lot w

the Budget Commissioner at Bi 
reveal some interesting facts pence I 
the various sources of financial su| ■ |*r| 
for M.A.C. 

For the year which does November J 
there was available for general mantJ 
nance expenses: $1K1,.'J()5 from v.i 
Federal funds, §130,300 from trust I m 
(bequests, bookstore, dining hall recti pil 
and SI .037,000 from State appropriat > I 
Against the latter item, however, ihetj 
should be credited a total of approxj 
mately $270,000 of receipts from tuitiJ 
and fees, sales of products, fees for rC|| 
latory services, etc., which are polk U 
by the College and turned into the stai 
treasury, leaving the net cost to th 
Commonwealth for operating expense 
the College for the year at about $757, mil 

In addition to the cost of get en| 
maintenance, the State appropriated 
total of $220, 500 for special item-, 
permanent improvement OiOJ of the io,J 
of erection of the physical educatiorl 
building, remodeling of North Colln;t| 
new water mains, etc.). 

In brief, the total cost of the instituting 
of approximately $1,507,000 for I 
current year comes from the folio. \|

And lift our hearts and voices 

In the songs we love so well. 


Sons of old Massachusetts! 

Devoted sons and true,

It should be distinctly noted that this 
present expression of opinion by the 
alumni of M.A.C. has nothing to do with 
the question of establishing a state uni- 
versity or making M.A.C. the nucleus of 
such a university. The organized alumni 
of M.A.C. have simply gone on record as 
believing that the present college would 
be more accurately described by another 

"Aggie" men with characteristic di- 
rectness, believe in calling a spade a 
■pade and feel that since the college is 
really more than an agricultural college, 
it should be given a name indicative of 
the service rendered, i.e., Massachusetts 
Mate College.

At the last meeting of the International 
Relations Club the following officers were 
elected for the ensuing year: president, 
Louren M. Tashjian '31; secretary, Miss 
Mary K. Black "88. The Club plans to 
hold a series of meetings at which noted 
men will speak and lead the discussions 
on subjects relating to international 
problems. At this meeting tentative 
plans were considered for the Annual 
Model League of Nations Assembly 
which is the climax of the year's work in 
the Club.

To the Editor of the Collegian'. 

Co education must be weighing heavily 
on President Thatcher's UMMCieaCC when 
he allows himself to be quoted , and to 
look in the dictionary lor the meaning 
too. Of ionise, we never realized that 
co -education sukfcests that the two sexes 
are to be mixed in the same college, or 
thereabouts. But then, to conipens.ite 
for such triteness the Collegian still roots 
for Massachusetts State; and that bit 
about too few cuts was really choice. 
Aren't you becoming somewhat and. u ions, 


There are filteen of us down here at 
Harvard, all Bay Staters too, and while 
we are fermenting an article, for the 
Collegian's columns, dealing with Mr. 
(iore in red letters, I thought I might 
sneak in a few hints. 

In the first place, Kongo is spelled with 
a "K", and since the KoagO Board of 
Health is not deatl, we resent any African 
connect ions whatsex'ver. 

For the first time in five years the 
Collegian frankly admits the truth about 
football. Instead of some fat head iroon- 
ing over the "Aggie Fight," the team is 
a disgrace. How does the Athletic Office 
account for its exhibits? Perhaps glade 
t ion, the return ol the ice a^e, you know. 
Sonic one or some thing is fro/en in the 
vicinit> of Amherst; do >ou agree?

of fighting for aOmething dear |ivee the 
kick that semis the warrior blood to 
victory. We are with you for Massadm 
scl!\ State, unconditionally! 

Henry Wilhelm Jensen 

To the Kditor of the Collegian: 

The nit system of Massachusetts 
State is quite unfortunate. In fact, in as 
much as it pertains to freshmen and 
sophomores, it is a crime. Juniors and 
seniors are allowed a mere ten percent of 
1 lass cuts, while freshmen and sophomores 
are not allowed a sinulc 1 lass cut. That 
is abominable. 

Obviously, the faculty must have sonic 
reason for imposing these restrictions. 
Cpon inquiry it was found that one ol 
the reasons for such action was that it 
was desired to keep the students well 
bound to the College, esjiecially cm 
week-ends. The faculty's want ink" to 
keep the students well linked to their 
Alma Mater can well be appreciated, and 
they should be honestly lauded in their 
endeavors to increase the already high 
interest which the students have in the 
State College. But, the question arises, 
haven't they taken tlie wrong method of 

The present cut system defeats this 
aim of making Massachusetts ap|>ear as 
a real college. The student of Massa- 
chusetts hasn't much opportunity to get 
home on week-ends and to talk with 
other students on the relative merits of 
their schools. And when he does get the 
chance to talk with students of other 
colleges, his conversation is very likely 
to amount to this: "Gee, we don't do 
things that way at Massachusetts." 
Things like that are quite likely to lower 
the student's own estimation of Massa- 
chusetts State. It surely doesn't speak 
well of it to be students of other colleges, 
and to the prospective student it is rather 
discouraging. One might argue that we 
don't want students who come here be- 
cause of an attractive cut system; that 
we want students who come here to study. 
That is quite right: students who come 
to Massachusetts are expected to put 
studies first. It must be remembered 
however, that if a student is kept with his 
nose to the grindstone he will soon become 
mentally tired and will end in failure, or 
he will soon become disgusted with this 
process called education. Then the spirit 
of the College is lost. 

Let it be remembered, then, that the 
plea for a more liberal cut system is not

"The agricultural colleges have played 
cleverl) on the sympathy of the laming 
element in the population, with every 

variation ot technique known to any 
skilled group which has successfully 
learned how to capitalize on the . . . rural 
legislator or farmer. 

"In his review ot the present status ol 
agricultural education in the United 
States, Shepanlson, who has just con- 
ducted a survey of this field for the 

General Education Hoard, states that 

'Massachusetts Agricultural Colh'ge is 
the only Land Grant College devoted 
exclusively to agriculture and subjots 
related thereto.' This is an indication of 
how far the others have departed from 
their humble origin. 

". . . The simple truth is that there is 
not suffiiient demand for undergraduate 
work in agriculture alone to justify their 
continued existence. . . 

"At first the agricultural college vali- 
antly labored, like the proverbial country 
girl, to be true to its original purpose. 
It offered a simple curriculum in under- 
graduate work. . . 

"Swamped by the growth of this de- 
mand (for liberal education! and worried 
by <le< reasing interest in agricultural 
college work, the Land ('.rant Colleges 
did two things both shrewd and wise 
from the point of self-preservation. They 
multiplied the number of subjects and 
courses in agriculture to give the out- 
ward appearance of prosperity and to 
keep up with the modern tendency to 
serialize observable in all other college 
courses. They also began, quietly at 
first, and then with increasing boldness.

were always very careful to keep fresh 
the contacts with the rural members of 
the state legislature, the state grange, 
the rural press and all other powerful 
political agents of that general type. 
They did this more or less under the 
surface until the desire on the part of 
the farmers to send their children to a 
liberal arts college in order that they 
might receive "all advantages' which 
were given to the children of the city 
folk, became outspoken and widespread.

With participation in two air meets to 
their credit, owning three ships valued 
at 11800, and having made more than 
400 safe flights since last October 1st in 
which there were only three minor crack 
ups, the University of Wichita Clider 
Club has realized its dream, according to 

George Baughman, president. 

Starting with no material or money, 
with only an elementary knowledge of 
aeronautics, a group of engineering stu- 
dents on the Wichita campus founded 
the Glider Club last year. Members of 
the club built two of the ships during 
spare time, and after work during the 
summer. The third plane was purchased 
from a local concern. It has a wing span 
of 58 feet and weighs 180 pounds, and 

requires a pilot to sail it.

Completion of New Building 
Will Culminate Old Dreams 

Curry Hicks, Head of Physical Edu- 
cation Department, Largely Re- 
sponsible for Structure 

I his afternoon returning alumni and 
guests of the students will have the 
irtunity of seeing how far the con- 
duction of the Physical Education 
Building has progressed. Those who have 
-, ,n it in its earlier stages will be deeply 
impressed at the way it has grown in the 
last few weeks. Urged on by the approach 
,>f winter, the constructors have rushed 
I only this afternoon finished enclosing 
the entire building. This means that the 
irorfc can continue through the winter, 
uninterrupted in inclement weather. To 
■apply heat to the workers it will l>e 
■ ssary to tap the pipe line which goes 
Irom the Drill Hall to the Page Labora- 
tory. This temporary arrangement will 
suffice until next summer when a new 
line will be laid direct from the central 
aing plant. 

The Campaign 
For thirty years the College asked for 
a new Physical Education building but 
the legislature consistently refused to 
■ nsider it. As a result everyone came to 
realise that if we were to have one it 
must be erected independently of the 
S'ate. With this purpose in mind the 
i.iiiipaign was launched at a meeting of 
the Boston Alumni on March 1, 1928 
under the direction of Prof. Curry S. 
Hicks, head of the Athletic Department. 
1'rofessor Hicks obtained a leave of 
.il>sence to work on the campaign, and is 
still busy with its many intricacies. It 
largely through his efforts that the 
lung, discouraging campaign was success 
lul and that the State finally agreed to 
pay part of the expense on a 00-40 basis. 
When the building is complete it will 
stand as a memorial to his services. 
To be Dedicated in June' 
Once the money was assembled the 
real proved easy and, despite supersti- 
tion, the first shovelful of earth was 
turned Friday, June 18, 1 ( ».«>. In four

At ■ meeting of the Faculty Student

of Strong student opposition which 
Started last spring and was continued 
this fall. In response to request! horn 

all the fraternities and the co eds, and 

from the Senate, Adelphia and the 

lnteifraternity Conference, the com- 
mittee reconsidered their decision, and 
agreed to give the students an Oppor-

The original rule which prohibited 
the use of upstairs rooms at fraternity 
dances has been changed so that it 
low reads somewhat as follows: "Att 

all fraternity dances the rooms on the 

first and second floors must be open 
and lighted at all times. No guest is 

to go above the second floor. Chaper-

"The Americans Come" is the name of 
the Roister Doister play for the next 
Aggie Revue. The play was written by- 
Professor Rand and will be presented 

under his di r ec t i o n. A large number 

turned out for the try-outs. Especially 
worthy of mention is the number of 
freshmen who sought parts. The play 
will be ready for presentation sometime 
in January and, besides being shown in 
Stockbridgc, will be presented in the sur- 
rounding towns. If the road trip is suc- 
cessful, and the play well received, the 

play will most likely be chosen as the 
From Show. The following obtained 
parts in the try outs. 

Massachusetts' gridiron warriors went 
down for their fourth defeat of the season 
00 Saturday, O cto be r ~'>, at Alumni Field, 
when they met their old rivals, Worcestei 
Tech. A 30-yard run by Kane in the 
first quarter gave the visitors an early 
lead over the home team, and the re- 
mainder of the game consisted of a 
punting duel between Kimball of Massa 
chusetts and Asp of Tech. 

During the first quarter the Engineers 
had the advantage of a strong wind and 
were able to work the pigskin down the 
field in a one-sided exchange of punts. 
When within scoring distance, Kane 
skirted the Hay Stater's left end for a 
30-yard dash which resulted ill the only- 
tally of the game. The try for the extra 
point failed. 

Kneeland and llolmberg showed up 
well for Massachusetts during the second 
period. Due to the consistent gains made 
by these players and long punts by Kim- 
ball, the ball was advanced gradually into 
enemy territory, and the half ended with 
the ball on the visitor's IX- yard line. 

Kneeland's run to midficld after the 
kickoff in the second half was the fore 
runner of a series of long gains, in which

This aftemoon is beksg heard for the 
first time in football atmosphere Captain 

E. Miles Sumner's new march "Fight 
Massachusetts." The musk and words 
for this song were written List spring by 
the Captain, a band arrangement of 
which has been made by llendrii k 

Schekon, band leader of the S ev e n th 
Field Artillery at Tort Ethan Allen, a 

personal friend of ( 'aptain Sumner. S hel- 
ton, who has written many man lies, has

band arrangement of the new man h. 

"Fight Massachu etta" was srritten to 

give Bay State a Sttapp) man hini^ song, 
one which would be suitable for a foot- 
ball game, and one to inspire the team 
to fight. Captain Sumner has succeeded 

signally in his attempt. The tune is 
catchy with great opportunit) for har- 
mony in singing, while the words an 

appropriate and fit the music. It was 

planned to let Captain Sumner lead the 
United States Army Hand in one numliei 
last night, and he hoped to have them play 

"Tight Massai husetts." 
The college band is playing "Tight 

Massai husetts" today. The words for

Oh Yeah 

We are always amazed to sec how lew 

nun escort or accompany co-eds to the 

various athletic functions. Most ol us 

agree that va arc parsimonious to a 
degree but that is not ;• good alibi for 
the co-eds purchase their own athletic 
tickets. And if the nirls read the Novem- 
ber Woman'* Home Companion, ignorance 

of the name cannot be the cause. No. 
after all the reason is thai the men are 
afraid to ask a co-ed M else that the 
co-eds refuse the proffered invitation-. 

Speaking from personal experience we 

would say thai the cause is oh. none 

of your damned business. 

The BOng-chapels are a good idea but 

it is anno>ing, to such ol us as are trying 

to catch up on our sleep, to hav* to 

stand ui> for it. All right, it you have 

that kind of a mind, go ahead and sa\ 
thai we have no college spirit; we're too 
Bleep) tO debate.

of water and there will be ice for skating 

on the evenings when we ought to be 


football, ih«- King "i college athletics, reigns supreme. Two ol bis subject! meet 
in the list, and eleven warriors, staunch and true, fight for supremacy. The knights 
representing the opposing rides are picked men; they have been trained in their 
battle strati gj ; they have been spurred on bj the spirit of their countrymen and by 
the justice ol their cause. 

Crowds on the sides >>i the list do homage to King Football, bands play in his 
honor. The spectators are as much a part of the fray ss are the warriors. Before 
the game, all are gay and laughing. The ladies are decked out in their brightest

Hi.' fight is on. Plunging, charging, the men meet. The captains on the held 
dictate the method ol attack. The warriors may gain, may be repulsed, but are 
never beaten. Again they smash the opposing knights. A knight is injured and is 

home from the tr.i\ while a fresh warrior is put in Ins place. The other side now t.ik.-s 

n- turn at driving tow. nd- the goal. The battle continues. A touchdown. After a 
tremendous effort, a man has crossed the last tline. The crowds on one side of the 
held cheer; those on the other yell encouragement. The fray goes on again. Crush 
ing, tearing, always fighting, through to the end of the tournament they battle. The 
fight ends. The victors are a< « tainted; the losers leave the fit Id <>f conflict confident 
<>f having done their best, but conquered by a superior foe. 

The crowds leave Perhaps they enjoy a dance in the evening. N<> matter their

of the College changed except tor a fee 

Stockbridge students who prominentlv 
label their cars MAC. and explain to 
all ami sun.lrs that they are members of 
the Massachusetts Agricultural College.

tain Stage of adolesetue at which one

avoid both business meetings. 


To the Editor of the Collegian'. 

I am noiits- to try and refute the arguments raised against the proposal to change 
the presenl name of the Massai husetts Agricultural College. 

These arguments were, briefly, six in number. 

first : "There are already enough so-called liberal colleges in Massachusetts." 
<>t course, I could request a definition of "liberal." This would only result in a 
battle ol books, quotations from Aristotle, Plato, Dom Bosco, Montessori, Bergson, 
Dewey, Durant, Watson. Barnes, and so on, ad infinitum. Supposing I state that 
there are only two liberal colleges in the stale, namely, Amherst and William.-? I 
challenge anyone to name .mother! Harvard College? Possibly, if it were not tied 
up with Harvard University. Boston College? Not strictly with its Law School. 
Lowell Textile, Worcester Tolyteeh, Springfield, Clark, win re are the "ureal many"? 
For the -ike of argument, let us assume that every college in the stale i- liber. d. 
Now. off on a tangent we go. I n gister as a voter but decide that there are "enough 
good Voters" in Stamford already and refuse to i,n a ballot. There is no apparent 

public demand lor my vote or m\ entrance into the political arena. I may have' 

background, assume that I am politically minded, etc., but thete.ue enough of this 

type already; ergo, there is no need for me. So any potential talents lie dormant 
bet the reactionary element does not want new blood. The crux ol the fallacy 
in that contention that Massachusetts "h as enough liberal colleges" i- this: has a 
state institution (he moral right to decide when the limit ol its usefulness has been 
reached basing this decision largely <>n the roseate sentiment <>! a few alumni? Should 
the st ope of M.A.C. not increase in every possible way when its physical equipment 
and academic worth warrant infinitely more giving thin i- visible under the present 
static conditions? Has MAC. "exhausted its possibilities"? 

md: "M.A.C. is well and favorably known under its present name." 
In other words, let well enough alone. Frankly, I question the sweeping truth of 
our adversaries' contention. No doubt, M.A.C. has a smug, cow like, internal satis- 
faction with il- reputation. True-, no one has much severe criticism to offer, people 

"speak wc^ll" ol it it they happen i<> know that the institution exi-is. Why? He- 
cause people will "-peak well" of anv person, organization, or institution suffering 
from an "inferiority complex" and doing nothing very alarming, which docs not 

lead, or which refuses tO initiate- or mold public opinion and thought. Good old 

M.A.C, hamstrung l>\ standpat legislators for years, ingrown, introspective, living 
Solely in its pa-t ! 

Third: "There is no need for a change in name ol the college it it is to be funda- 
mentally agricultural." 

Well, well! When was this decided? According to a recent census, Massachusetts 

ranked 38th Unit ol 48 in agricultural production. 

Fourth: "The College is rated high bv other institutions." 

By this, 1 take it, our opponents imply that it "Aggie" goes State," our academic 
brethren will cross us from their mailing lists and refuse to play with us. Indeed, it 

would be tragic to lose our place in the charmed circle' No more will Amherst and 
Aggie men pal around together, never again will Bowdotn or Dartmouth confer 
honorary degrees on our graduates, gone to the limbo ol the past will be the convivial 
get-togethers of Aggie and Harvard men, gone are our exchange professors from 
Vale, Rutgers, Middlebury. and I. (land Stanford! Well, such are the vicissitudes of 
life and we'll have to struggle along even against the ignoble snubbing we will receive. 

Fifth: "M.AC, is judged by its men rather than its name." 

It is certainly fortunate that the pioneers of "Amherst Academy" and the "Female

hand, had just chased l'rof. Cordon over 
the uphill half of the llolvokc Range:

"You brought it."

by the man who felt impelled to write

censured even in the remoter rural

Paul Porter, Field Secretary of the 
League for Industrial Democracy spoke 
before the student body at chapel. 
Friday, October '2A. His main theme 
was the present unemployment situation 
in the I'nited States. He favored a 
socialistic government with the profits 
of industry more evenly distributed 
among the masses. 

Mr. Porter quickly obtained student 
interest by pointing out that five thou-

H?e Scribe 

Again the day that Amherst and 
Massachusetts are to meet in an athletic 
competition is fast approaching. 'There is 
a strange l.e lin^ in the air. Amherst, 
although it has had a fairly good season 
so far in the year, appears to have- a very 
battered elub after its terrible game with 

its old foe, Wesleyan. Consequently, 

May Staters hopes are rising fast and a 

new feeling of confidence is being mani- 
fested by the students in their football 

team. Ye Scribe is caught up with the 

idea that here- is a chance (o Anihe-ist 
in football. Sei, he- decides to seek an 
interview with the man in charge of 
Amherst's football destinies. "Al" 

Somehow or other, Ye Scribe felt a 

little constraint at first in asking qUCS 
tions but this soon left him when he .lis 
Covered how interesting this coach vva-. 
Some of the questions that Ye Scribe 
put forth to the Amherst mentor were 

quite confusing but everything turned 

out all right. 

"To begin with," said Ye Scribe, "I 

should like to know a lew Statistics 
about your team." 

"Well," answered Mr. Wheeler, "we 
are putting on a rather light team this 

week. The line weighs on an average of 

1X0 pounds while the baekfield I should 
sav does not average more than loo. 
The- average height of the- line is about 

-ix leet, whereas the- baekfield is only 

about live feet e-ight in the average." 

"Who will be your acting captain if 
leticr does not play?" asked Ye Seribe. 

"I suspect that Turner is the most 

likely man to take- over that job," 

answered the coach. 

"Who, in your estimation, is the best 
foothill player on your team?" 

"Turner will be the best man Satur- 

day," replied Mr. Wheeler, "but. of 
course, Tener is the- best baekfield man 

we- have." 

"During this year's season, who was 
the playef whom yOU thought was the- 
best on the opposing team- ?" 

"James, of Princeton, was by far the 

icsl . 

"Have- you anv idea that Amherst will 
have- an easy time with our team this 
year?" cpicrie-d Ye Scribe. 

"Not at all! Your teams have- always 
put up a good fight. Besides, not one of 
our regular baekfield will be in the game." 

"Then you think we have a good chance 
of winning the game?" put in Ye Scribe. 

"Well, I wouldn't sav anything about 

that." said the coach a- our interview 
came- to an end. 



Powerful Hay State Teams Developed 
Bv Coaches in Past Ye;irs 



During the years immediately preced- 
ing and following 1906, the College had 

several Dart mouth men as eoache- ot 
football, two of whom were- outstnaind- 
ing. Both of these men turned out ex- 
cellent teams which met ami defeated 

colleges which were out of our class, not 

only in numbers but also in cxpeticm e. 

Coach Jennings had been an outstand- 
ing halfback at Dartmouth before coming 
to M.A.C. as coach of football. Not only 
did he know and understand the game- 
but he was able to instil his knowledge 
into his players. He was a driver but he- 
did not antagonise the players, lb- was 
always behind the te-am pointing out 
mistakes in no uncertain tones but he 

was equally epiie-k to praise and encourage 

good work on the part of the- men. The 
fighting spirit so prevalent at Dartmouth 
at that time was instilled into the men so 
that they reached heights unattainable 
under an ordinary coach. He developed 
co-operation between the players so that 
the team functioned as a unit and not as 
(Continued on Page 4) 

A very large proportion of the studetn 
at this College are working for wag 
during the academic year in order to pay 

a part of their college expenses, s- 

others work during vacations for tl. 
same purpose. In fact, a recent SUrVi 
shows that nearly XtK,' of our coll. 
students are earning part or all of tl 

ow n college expenses. 

From many standpoints, this is "all 
the good." Such student! usually v 

and appreciate their college opportuniti 

more than do those to whom it is gi\ 
free Of all effort on their part. Similar!) 
they are more accustomed to work Cr 
what they get than are those to win 
everything is handed without effort i 
their part. Appreciation and the will ti. 
work are valuable assets to students ti- 
the standpoint of the- College and 
it can give. 
On the other hand, a necessity to eai 

too huge a proportion of one's w 

through college is a serious handicap. In 

the beginning, it interferes with partii 
pation in extra-curricular activities which 
are- one of the very valuable aspects of ,1 
college course. All my life, I have !■ 
gretted that I did not borrow n 
money and participate more in such 

activities during mv university com 

Carried further, the- necessity to work i 
many hours at outside tasks make- 
impossible- to do well the required claw 
room and laboratory work, which is i 
real serious purpose of coming to colli. 

In general, a student who either has on 

hand or can secure by assistance <ir 
borrowing, less than the entire necessai- 
expenses of the first year and at lea i 
half those of the other three years - 
seriously handicapped ami will probal.

these three volumes wa- favorably

17-7 Defeat Administered by Goremen 

to Purple and White in Came 

Replete with Action 

(.From The Mussai husetts Collegian, 
November .">, l'.llM. i 

"The Battle of the Ages' has In-en 
succeeded in the inter-town series by the 
battle of the Century,' and once more 
the Purple and White of Amherst has 
been lowere.l in defeat to the Murexin 
and White of Aggie. Through sixty 
minutes of gruelling football the doremen 
outplayed the heavier Amherst eleven, 
made their own breaks and won by a 17 
to 7 score before a record crowd of 7000. 
The M.A.C. eleven has well been christ- 
ened 'the irresistible inch worms'; slow 
but steady is their advance and only 
their opponents can realize the omnipo- 
tence of each plodding advance for a 
score. Their sole brilliance lies in the 
concerted effort and constant aggressive- 
ness of eleven men. One of the salient 
features of the game was the excellent 
condition of the M.A.C. team. Not a 
single substitution was made and no 
serious injury was incurred during the 
struggle. The Agrarians were outweighed 
ten pounds to the man in the line and 
about eight in the baekfield. yet the only 
offense which Amherst successfully 
launched was by the aerial route. On 
the other hand, the hemic team gained 
consistently through the line and skirted 
the ends on a few instances for ample 
yardage. The Aggie tackling was the 

most ravage dasBoaatration they have 
given this year. 

"The initial kie koff, Amherst to M.A.C, 
was a touchback and Aggie had the ball 
on her twenty yard line. After a series 
of line plunges, Moln-rg punted to the 
Amherst forty-yard line. The Sahrinas 
made a first down in three rushes, and 
then Gilmer circled left end for twenty 
yards but fumbled when tackled. Thurlow 
recovered for M.A.C. McGeoch and 
Sullivan earned a first down in three 
plunges but the Amherst defense tight-

Munson, Grayson, McGeoch, and 
Gore Made Creditable Records 

Speaking of athletes, there are a few 
men right on our campus, now faculty 
members, who have played on some of 
the best teams that the state college — 
known by the name of "Aggie" then — 
has ever placed on the gridiron. These 
teams played in the so-called "good old 
days," when various athletic associations 
never heard of subsidizing athletics. 

Foremost among the members of our 
faculty who have served the college on 
the football field is Mr. Willard A. 
Munson '05, who is at present Director 
of the Extension Service. His appellation 
in those days was "Roaring Bill Munson," 
and how he did roar! "Bill" played for 
four years in the best football period that 
the state college has ever experienced. 
He was captain of the team in 1904 and 
all during his career he was first string 
fullback. The year that "Bill" was 
captain, he was mentioned as AH Eastern 
fullback, and this honor was not at all 
mean for in those days the Bay Staters 
met Harvard, Dartmouth, Williams and 
Wesleyan, as well as Amherst. 

Harold M. "Kid" Gore, present head 
coach of athletics, was a peppy represen- 
tative of Massachusetts on the gridiron 
in the years 1909 through 1912. He 
played at quarterback, and his field

nixed as the best end on the tit Id at the 

Harvard Stadium the year that Harvard 
won over Massachusetts 7-<i. Moreover, 

that same year he was all New England 
end whkh was as great an honor as that 
of making an all American team today. 

Another one of our faculty members who 

also fought for the state college, is Oliver 

C. Roberts oi the class of 1918. "Tobey," 
as his classmate s called him, wsta second 

string guard on the 1915 club, but in the 

following year earned his letter as guard 

on the varsity line. 

Coaching our present football team is 

another one of bay State's siars. ( )| 
course the reference is t<i Charles Mc- 
Geoch '-•"> who played for three years on 
the varsity squad. "Chick" was g rip- 
snorter in his day, and was third highest 
scorer in the east his senior year in 
college. The H'j| team on which he 
played was ver\ successful, winning six 
games and losing but one. That year, the 
varsity club defeated Amherst College by 
I BCOfft of 17-7. I he eleven men who 
starteil the game also finishing it. 

Some o| the newer men are Spellman 
'27, Rice '-\ and Tuttle '28. Spellman 
and Rice had the misfortune to get 

smashed up before the end of the season. 

but Tuttle lasted the grind and estab- 
lished for himself the reputation as being 
one of the pluckiest men to play on the 
state college teams.

an aggregation of individual players. Ik- 
was fortunate in that he did not have to 
spt ml most of iiis time teaching the lunda- recog- mentals for nianv of the players wen 

from large city high schools which offered 

a good football background. 

Coach Bullock, another Dartmouth 
man was Jennings' successor. He was the 
same type of man. equally quick to 

censure and to praise, and equally suc- 
cessful into Jving his teams a fighting 
spirit which was never lowered even in 
defeat. His teams won most of their 
gam e s but even the defeats were hard 
I ought battles which were not settled 
until the final whistle blew. 

Director Munson of the Kxtension 
Service, who was captaifl of the 1906 
team and one of the best minor college 
players of his time, says that the morale 
of a football team is only as high as the 
morale of the general student body. There 
are always times, especially after a series 
Of defeats, when the students have little 
faith in the football team and do not 

hesitate t<> say so although a show of 

confidence on the part of the Students is 
one of the essentials toward building a 
w inning team. 

At the time of which we are writing 
student support and confidence were at 
their peak. One example of student 
support stood out. Many of the tootball 
men were earning their way through 
college by waiting on table. Sometimes 

the coach would decide that certain of 

these men needed a rest from practise 
and Work. When this happened there 
were always students who would take 

the place <>i these waiters so that they 

could rest and not take any pay for the 

•rvice. They would also substitute for 

the waiters when they were away on 
trips without demanding any compen- 

Student support means a great deal to 

any team, the men on the field cannot 

distinguish what the crowd is saying but 

the noise i> encouraging and enthusiasm 
in the crowd means added enthusiasm on 

the field.

Paul Porter addressed a combined 
gathering of the Liberal and Inter- 
national Relation Club me mb ers in the 
Memorial Room last Friday evening. 
His subject was "Mow to Stop War." 
In an interesting introduction Mr. Porter 
pointed out tin- reasons why such a sub- 
ject is timely, mainly the rise of Facist 
and Communist parties in other countries 
ami the tense situation in the East. All 
of which make the possibilities for war 
more acute than it has been in recent 

Continuing with his speech, Mr. Porter 
stated that the abolishment of nation- 
alism and the springing up a world think- 
ing people would eliminate one of the 
causes of war, the blind and intense 

patriotism of n a t io n a l ism. 

A decre as e in military preparation is a 

second force which would aid in stopping 

war. Preparation has only led to costly 
competition. Our sham battles in the 
Carribean just stir up the Japanese to

stage similar combats which in turn 
worry the Chinese. So the cycle continues. 

Fear is the basic cause of all war. A 
change of attitude and machinery to 
govern international relations would do 
much to obviate this third cause. 

The last and a leading cause for war 
is the race for economic imperialism. 
The nations of the world find it imperative 
to obtain certain basic raw materials 
Since the products of the nations must 
be sold, tariffs stir up ill feeling here. An 
international commission to regulate the 
distribution of essential commodities and 
a lowering of tariff duties would lessen 
this force of causing war.

Let it not be said that the Massachu- 
setts freshmen have not got the well- 
known Massachusetts spirit, believe it 
or not, when "Chick" McCeoch called 
for freshman candidates for freshman 
football, there were some 74 or 75 men 
reporting for practice. Probably no one 
was more surprised than was Coach 
McCeoch in view of the fact that the 
average number of freshmen reporting 
for practice in the past has been just 
about half the number this year. "Chick" 
was somewhat abashed by this startling 
turnout, but within a short while he solved 
the problem by dividing the squad into 
six teams with several managers. These 
six teams he named the Mules, the 
Wildcats, the Panthers, the Lions, the 
Bulldogs, and the Wolves. Furthermore, 
"Chick" assigned to each team several 
men who had seen service on high school 
and prep school teams with the idea that 
the presence of experienced players 
would stimulate the men to greater 
heights of effort. That he has not failed 
in his purpose is evident by the keen 
competition existing among the various 
clubs. The captains and coaches of the 
different teams are as follows: 

The Wolves who are leading in the 
interclub competition are led and coached 
by "Joe" Push, former Turners Falls 
and Vermont Academy star. Hush, by 
the way, leads his teammates and fellow- 
opponents in high scoring. "Binker" 
Smith, Henry, and Watson are the out- 
standing men supporting Bush. 

Under the able tutelage of "Johnny" 
Costello and "Kalphv" Kneeland, the 
Wildcats present themselves as formid- 
able opponents to the Wolves who are 
but one point ahead of the former club. 
Roger Blackburn, who was the prominent 
player at Stoneham High last year and 
who was coached by our own "Doc" 
Cordon, is captain of this team. He is 
ably supported by Shaffner, C.oodhue, 
and Solomon, former end at Maiden 
High School. 

Next come the Lions who are two 
points behind the Wolves and one point 
behind the Wildcats. This is a truly 
scrapping team, and is coached by var- 
sity material in the form of "Cy" Kim- 
ball. Reynolds, who has personally con- 
ducted the team to victory several times, 
is captain of this aggregate. Reynolds, 
Chapin, Wheeler, and Shumwick form 
the nucleus of the Lions. 

fourth in the standings of the clubs 
are the Panthers, who are coached by 
"Freddie" Ellert. last year's varsity 
backfield man. The Panthers an cap- 
tained by "Fred" Corcoran, another one 
of "Doc' Cordon's charges from Stone- 
ham. Foremost among Corcoran's team 
mates are: Mountain, Smiaroski, Adams, 
and Lojko. 

The Bulldogs are holding down fifth 
place, by virtue of winning one game and 
tying three. The club is coached by 
"Jack" Foley and is captained by Robert- 
son, former Jamaica Plain end. (low and 
Mulhall form the main clogs in the Bull- 
dog's attack. 

Last in the standings of the teams an 
the Muks, who are in charge of "(Tiff" 
Foskett. Sibson, who starred for three 
years at Milford High School, is captain 
of the club, and is supported by Carlow.

Reverend Gilkey stated that intense 
competition is the characteristic of present 
day business. Has the average person of 
ability and intellect a chance? Each one 
has certain strong points as well as weak 
ones. These strong points may not have 
cash value at the present time hut found 
and trained they are of great value. 

There are two ways of winning phe- 
nomenal success. One belongs to tin- 
genius of high natural endowment. The 
other is to take ordinary equipment and 

use it with the most effectiveness. But 

the question is: how should one go about 
to make himself an effective worker? All 
effective workers watch the details ol 
their work. 'This trait is of fundamental 
importance. Ruskin condemned a statue 
arhkh seemed to be of superior workman- 
ship because upon closer inspection he 
pen cived the back of the bead to be 
poorly done. Another way is to take the 

annoyances of life quietly. A last and 
very important trait in an effective 

worker is the learning to keep one's 
temper. Many through sustained self 
confidence have broken through to win 
when affairs have looked blackest and t he 
moment most critical.

What <irr we to think of the Class of 
"A'2: "We have been here three years and 
have two more to ^o".' 

Four weeks ago, there appeared iii the editorial column a suggested reviaal <>f the 

present cut system. This plan provided for ten per cenl CUti for liolimcn. fifteen 

per cent lor sophomores, and unlimited! for juniors and seniors. Although this 

system would, in our opinion, be perfectly workable, it represents rather an ideal 

sit ion, one which is too mm h of a change to be approved bv the administration. 

There has been no active obje tion to the present cut system l>y the undergraduate 

body. No doubt the reason is that anyone with a K"'»l line can easily net an excuse. 

With a new (lit system, the absence rules could be enforced more strictly. We main- 
tain that students at Massachusetts are here primarily for an education. I'.rgo, let 
them take care of getting this education OH their own accord, and not he toned to 

go to i lasses. 

Although unlimited cuts virtual!) exist on this campus, the number who enjoy 
this privilege is the very small group who have averages ol 861 or better. In search 
loi a workable plan to serve as a fair trial for unlimited cuts, are decided that a much 

greater number would be affected were the unlimited privilege extended to students 
with Xl>\ or better. While S.Y, Students included only 1M from the 4(K) in the three 

upper classes, according to last years averages, 805 students total 83. It the propo 
sition were passed, we would recommend thai the Dean's office keep careful records 

, ,1 , lasses i ut and marks attaint d for the unlimited nit students. In this way, un- 
limited cuts would be given a really fair trial. 

Among the main improvements on the campus grounds this summer and fall, one 

,,| t | H . roost noteworth) is the work red-nth completed in front of South College. 

No longer is there a row of automobiles, with bumpers protruding half way across 

the sidewalk to the discomfort of pedestrians. Now there is a turfed strip in front 
o! South College and behind the building is a copious parking space. Mr. William 

II. Armstrong, new Superintendent <>f the College Grounds, is responsible for the 
recent grading work on campus. We thoroughly appreciate Mr. Armstrong's efforts 
especially in front of South College, and we trust thai he will further his ambition 
to beautify the Massachusetts campus. 


Amherst College has n0 eligibility rules. As a bald statement, that fact is a start 

ling, even radical, departure from the common code of eligibility rules, Vet tor such 
a plan to pass the administration indicates that the rules were not passed -imply in 

order to have better athletii teams. 

Man) questions and problems arise from eligibility rules. 1 -irst, the students who 

are int. nod in athletics and dramatics are barred from participation in these ac- 
tivities, whereas the student who is not doing any extra-curricular work is not penal 

liied. <in this basis, Amherst has developed a plan to put athletes and non-athletes 

on the same level. The student body is divided into three groups, according to 

scholarship ratinu. as follows: 

1, Dean's liM. for juniors and senior- Students in this group have unlimited cuts. 

2, Middleclass. For ordinary students. The) have 10$ cuts. 

3, Helow 7ii.. This class was formerly ineligible. Men in this group are limited 

to three cuts per i lass pel term. 

A further disadvantage ol the old eligibility rules at Amherst occurred when men 
dropped out oi college foi a year. It he worked during this time, he was eligible 
when he returned; il he attended another institution, he was declared ineligible. 

Eligibility rules seem to exist foi two reasons: to help the college to accomplish 

it- primar) motive ol education; and to bar a student's representing the college 

when he is not in goo 1 standing scholastkatly. In ab dishing t liability rules, Amherst 
blocked the first reason bv making the requirements lor staying in college more 
severe. Furthermore, if a student flunks out because he has been out for activities, 
that is his problem, not that ot the institution. Extra curricLlar activities should 

be treated as sin h and not absorb* I in academic problems. Whereas one may argue 

that scholastk-ally deficient students should not represent the Alma Mater, another 
ma) argue with equal strength that if anyone is able to sta\ in the Alma Mater, he 
is worthy to represent her in activities 

Thus, Amherst has ample reason for changing their eligibility rules. If the rules 
as to Staying in college are strictly enforced, the plan should work out well. On the 

contrary, it athletes are given opportunities which the) do not deserve, the tendency 
will be for athletes to spend a life of ease in college, unhampered by scholastk or 
financial difficulties. However. Amherst College has a high scholastic standing. 

Students have to work while there. If. then, this standard is continued high, under 

all circumstances, the new eligibility rules seem logical. We shall be interested as to 

the effect of the new rules at Amherst. 


In an adjoining column are printed the revised rules concerning college dances. It 
will be noted with pleasure and appreciation that Article 8 has been revised so that 
it now enables the use of rooms on the first and second floors at dames. 

the advantages of this privilege were evident last week-end at the house parties, 

where there were so mam dancing that at times it was almost inconvenient. If the 
entire number of couples attending had had to remain on the hr>t tloor all the time

filled with many varied experiences, but 
a little about "She))" as an undergradu- 

Six years ago, there entered with the 
freshman class one who was destined to 
fool the Military Department for one 
whole year by wearing a uniform made 
"holey" by acid and finally getting 
away witn it. This young chap soon 
became well-known around campus for 
his earnestness, ability and industry. A 
few of his honors were: member of the 
Senate. Adclphia. Maroon Key, Glee 
Club and Collegian board, becoming 
editor-in-chief of the last in his senior 

year. To show his loyalty to the College, 

he also tried out for track and football, 
the latter in his senior year. Such was his 

career at this College. 

To most of those who remember him 
as an undergraduate, he is recalled most 
vividlv as editor of the Collegia* ■ Cnder 

him the paper progressed as it had under 
the guidance of his predecessor, Ernest 

Spencer of the class of '28. The high 
quality ot that year's weeklv showed 
capabilities of its editor. 

Alter his graduation, "Shep" decided 
to take a trip around the world by work- 
ing on a World Tour liner. And he did. 
lbs voyage was replete with one adventure 
alter another, one of which was the first 
time that he had ever indulged in the 
manhandling of "The Cubes of Chance." 
According to "Shep." he was prettv 
lucky in this pastime and managed to 
accumulate a varied assortment of foreign 
(dins which would add materially to his 
wealth anil collection. Another incident 

proclaimed by him as rather exciting was 

the occurrence of a fr.u as in the ship's 
quarters when the most discrete thing to 
do was to get beneath a table to avoid 
any stray lead pellets that might be 
living around. Suffice to say that "Shep" 

came home unscathed. 

Not long after his return from his 
world cruise, "Shep" was asked to take 
over the position as editor ol /'/;/■ East 

Greenwich (Rhode Island) News. Since 

then he has been acting in that capaiitv 
and seems to like it very nun It. Telling 
about his work there he says: 

"This is a testimonial to the advan 
ta^es of Academic Activities, for my 
connection with the Collegian while in 
college is the main reason for my position 
in East Greenwich. The work is ever so 
interesting, and I have almost a free 
hand to do what I please. You probabl) 
know that the editor of a country week!) 
does practically everything. When I was 

working with the Ccl'egian, I used to 
think more or less methodically that |>cr- 
h.ips there was some value in the effort 
expended, but now 1 know that it was 
infinitely worth while. Drawing on that 
experience has made things ever so eas)

Research is systematic stud\ p or experi 
mentation lor the pur|x>se of discoverv 
ot new tacts or new principles. 

There are three types of research in 
progress at this College. 

The first of these is faculty research 
whereby a teacher seeks to increase hi 

teaching capacity through the acquire 

ment of new knowledge in his own field 
of learning. This is sometimes called 
"productive scholarship." Ever) college 
or university hopes to have many pro 
ductive scholars on its teaching staff am! 

tries to adjust the teaching load of such 
men so as to permit them to exercise theii 

capacity for this type of research. 

The second is graduate student re- 
search, in whii h students are learning tin 
method of such Study, in order to prepan 
themselves for a lifework in which re- 
search will be an essential part. In this 
case, the method rathir than the result 
of the study may be the reason for it. 
although interesting and important addi- 
tions to knowledge often result from re- 
search by graduate students who work 

under supervision or advice of experi- 
enced research men. 

The third, and much largest in volume, 
is experiment station research, in which 
a definite attempt is made to solve some 
specific problem which is a recognised 

need of some industry or to discover new 
scientific truths upon which improved 
industrial p roces s e s can be based For 

this purpose, this College has an Experi- 
ment Station Stall of some fifty persons 
who are K'ving their entire time to e\ 
perimental study of many different pro 
jects which have been determined to be 
needed for the benefit of imlustrv, chietlv 
the agricultural imlustrv in Massachu- 
setts. These persons are employed be- 
cause of their special training for research. 
They are connected with the correspond 

ing teaching departments, for purposes ot 
mutual advantage, but generally do not 
teach any classes themselves.

The Dean's Scholarship revealed 
that last year, in the classes <>l 1931, 
1932, and 1933 re sp ectively, the number 
of students rating between 90 1001 were 
1, (I. and I; between 86-90) were 1L\ 6, 
and 4; and between 80-865 were ">4 (in- 
cluding Denise Wright, omitted in the 
program list), 26, and 11. Interesting is 

the fact that the average scholarship by 

i lasses increased materially last year .is 

compared with that of 1928-1929. 

President Emeritus George D. olds of 
Amherst College was the principal speaker 
of the afternoon. He divided his time 
between two subjects: "Scholarship in 
Who's Who," and "What's What in 
Education." In the first he brought out 
the conclusions that high scholarship is 
both a question of balanced activities 
and of will. In the final topic, he stated 
that the aims of high scholarship are 
knowledge, formation of ideals and search 
for truth.

Fraternity Friendliness 

Last Saturday nine fraternities held house dances. As is the custom on tins cam- 
pus, they were real "round-robins," with everyone traveling from house to house. 
enjoying the music, criticising the decorations, and sampling the punch. A hearty 
welcome awaited everyone and the whole campus "made merry." As we walked 

around, we wondered how many realised that they were privileged to visit other 

houses only because this campus is almost unique in its friendly interfraternity re- 
lationships? And how main realized that by the very act ol their visiting they were 
further cementing the bonds of friendship? It deepens our enjoyment of the occasion. 
when we realize that instead of nine private dances. Massachusetts held nine inter- 

fraternity dam es. 

Morning Chapel 

Ever) chapel morning finds many of the Dining Hall waiters unable to make 
Stockbridge on time. The meal starts at 7 o'clock, and the waiters get the dishes and 
silver all out in readiness to reset the table as soon as the dirty dishes can be removed. 

Everyone dashes around, trying his utmost to finish before Chapel starts. Some do; 
many do not. Coed waiters in particular find it difficult. When one cannot stop 
seiving until 7,lf>. and then has to wait lor the diner- to finish eating before cleaning 
up and getting ready for the next meal, it is easy to see why this is so. In past years. 

the waiter- were excused from one chapel ■ week. Under this arrangement they took 

turns in setting up each others table and no one had any difficulty in "making chapel." 
Special privilege has been given off-campus waiters this year so that they run under 
the old rule. No Ml h proviso has been made for the Draper Hall help and two months 
experience with the new system seems to demand it. If the Old method wire revised, 
or il service to the diners could be Stopped at 7.30, everyone would be s.itisticd. ami 
e would find it nciess.uv to ovcrcut.

an extra point on a successful placement 

In the early part of the third period, 
If. ami I 1 yard runs by Kimball, and a 

22-yard return of a kirkoit l>\ Hotmberg 

furnished plenty of thrills for all of the 

tans. In the third period, Amherst took 
to the air with Kniitson firing a short 
pas-, to Tener, who advanced the ball 

eight yards to the Hay State 32-yard 
hut where Holmberg brought him to 
earth. Tener and Knutsou drove through 

for II yards and another first down. 

Cadigan, Knutson, and Gottlieb paved 

the way for Tener to score another tally 
and Knutson made .mother successful 
placement kick to raise the Lord Jeff's 

total to 2i) points. 

All Holmberg did on the next Idckoff 
was to scramble around and over about 
eight slower team -mates and shake off 
several Amherst tat klers for a gain of 
.57 yards before Kay finally managed to 
halt the State College's speed demon. 
The lighter Massachusetts eleven ion 
tinned to try to make up two touchdowns 

by repeated line plunges and off-tackle 

plays and kicking before a fourth down 
instead of attempting to complete some 
passes, all to no avail. 

In the opening of the fourth quarter, 

vigilant pass defense by Kimball, Thomp- 
son, ami Brown checked a march by the 
Sabrinas via the air route down into 
Massachusetts territory. However, stead- 
ily the Amherst team forced the Maroon 
and White back to its own eight yard line. 
At this point, Kimball dropped back to 
kick. Whitney crashed through the tired 
Bay State line and blocked Kimball's 
kick but Kimball was sufficiently alert to 
recover the ball in the end zone where he 
was tackled. This play netted the Jeff- 
men two points on a safety rather than 

the six points they would have received 

had one of the Lord Jeffs recovered the 

Del'asqua entered the game soon after 
the safety and propelled some (lever 
heaves to Wheeler and Knutson. Only 
the capable tackling of Art" Drown, 
who would leave his feet, kept these 

a< rials from developing into lengthy gains 

tor the Sabrinas. 

As usual the Massachusetts team did 

not attempt to employ passes until too 

late in the game; again the Bay Staters 
showed a decided weakness at tackling; 

and again the line was of little use ami 
sometimes hindered the work of Holmberg, 
Kimball, Brown, and Woods and. had it 
not been lor the spirit displayed by llolm- 
b rg in never saying "down." or the 
kicking and running by Kimball, or the 
ability to tackle correctly and to run 
swiltly as was shown by Art Brown, or the 
persistent plunging of Woods, last Satur- 
day's name would have been just another 

Amherst- Massachusetts game but. in 

s| ite of all. it was really quite interesting.

Kip Van Winkle" Will Be Presented 
by Head of Language Department 

•Rip Van Winkle" will he rendered by 

Trofessor Charles H. Patterson next 
Friday evening for Social Union. Al- 
though his specialty is Shakesperian 
plays, Professor Patterson is reading 
Rip Van Winkle" by student request. 

Professor Patterson has been a pupil 
ot M. T. Brown, S. S. Curry, Otis Skinner, 
George Riddle and others. He made a 
special study ot the stage at the Comedie 
Francaise, Paris, where he was a pupil of 
I icorges Berr. For some years he was on 
the professional stage with the Boston 
Museum Company, Maude Banks, 
Margaret Mather, and Otis Skinner. In 
his rendering of Shakesperian plays, 
Professor Patterson memorizes the dramas 
complete and gives a wonderful interpre- 
tation, especially ot the comedy parts. 

"Rip Van Winkle" was made famous 
by Joseph Jefferson, the great American 
comedian. It was Jefferson who produced 
the first dramatic version of Washington 
Irving's sketch and acted in the produc- 
tion with great success, particularly in 
the role of Rip, both in this country and 
abroad. Professor Patterson has studied 
Jefferson very carefully and so is pecu- 
liarly well -fitted to do justice to the 
< haracters. Since he is a real artist, the 
entertainment should be one of the best 
of the year.

fraternity life on campus the Inter- 
fraternity Council has reorganized the 
present system of interfraternity games

while other fraternity comj>etitive ac- 
tivities received no appreciable award. 
Under the new system, the council will

Dear George: 

Every year since we have lived in 
Wisconsin the Watts family have cele- 
brated World Aggie Night. There have 
been two or three people here whose 
interest in M.A.C. has been such as to 
justify a reunion with us. Now, however, 
these have all left our community and 
our recognition of the event this year 
will be rather modest. 

Please send me the usual letters, etc., 
from President Thatcher anil others. I 
reckon that no other World Aggie Night 
will be attended by one hundred percent 
of those eligible. 

Ralph I. Watts 

Such is the spirit that characterizes 
Worltl Aggie Nighr which is being heltl 
tomorrow night, November 13, in many 
towns antl cities of United States and 
Canada, also in Mexico and Porto Rico. 
Alumni once more will grasp the out- 
stretched hand of former pals and meet 
others of the graduate body. Here is an 
opportunity to discuss the events happen- 
ing back on campus and to hear news 
direct from the campus. Curry Hicks' 
letter telling about the progress made on 
the new Physical Education Building will 
be applauded.

President Thatcher Secures Action 

On Undergraduate Agitation After 

Three Years of Administration 

Massachusetts state College became 

prat tit. illy a reality last Monday when 
the Board of Trustees, in a special meet- 
ing, voted to approve the recommendation 

ol President Thatcher and to take BOOM 
s.nv legal steps tO change the name ol 

the College. A committee from the 

Hoard of Trustees will |K'tition the legis- 
lature to enact UDOB the change of name 
in January. 

This action, although ■ result of many 

years of undergraduate agitation, conies 

lather as a surprise. President RoaCOl 
YY. Thatihci deserves much treilit for 
his success in securing trustee action after 

building up the ri^ht attitude for three 

years, while the pronounced alumni 
Support ami the possibility of a State 

university so doubt hastened t hi- action.

Action baa beta taken! The Trustees have appro ve d the recommendation of 
President Thati lier to change the name of the college to the MASSACHUSETTS 
STATE COLLEGE, All thai now remains is legislative action next winter. With the 
present standing of the college at the St.ite House this should In- secured without too 
much opposition. Then the present seniors, the Class of Kl.'Jl, will be the first class 
graduated from the Massachusetts State College. The dream of forty-six years will 
be a reality; M.issae -husetts men will throw off the inferiority complex, and the 
College will start an era whose possibilities are limitless. 

This action is not as sudden as it will seem to many who have not been able to 
keep (lose contact with recent developments. It is rather the culmination of a series 
of events and happenings which followed in such rapid succession that the result 
was inevitable, l-ast Thursday there was a meeting of the Alumni at which President 
Thati her recommended the change; Friday he sent a recommendation to that effect 
to each trustee, Monday the Trustees had a special meeting and approved the action. 
They also authorized a committee to bring the proposition before the legislature as 
soon ;is possible. 'This will be in January. 

No one- (.ins*- cm Ik; accredited lor the recommendation; it is rather many causes, 
including in particular, the organization and agitation of alumni and students, the 
result of the alumni questionnaires, the recent newspaper publicity, the dan g e r of 

possible competition from the proposed public university, and the far-sightedness of 
the administration. It is the natural result of the hard work and deep thought of 
interested peopts. 

And what will this action mean? We can not prophesy, but if we let our imagi- 
nation- run wild, WC e.m tee, lar in the future, I university nestled in Amherst's hill. 
busy training eager youths in the Arts and Sciences. Without the use of imagination 

we can see ,i progressive college functioning under an adequate name, with liberal 

co ur ses open to all backed by Strong state support and producing men proud of 
their Alma Mater and determined to make their Alma Main proud ol them. 

Oh Yeah 

There isn't a stiletto or a revolver in 

the audience. Hut you can't be too sure 

about these Military "majors": they'd 

have jack knives at the very least. 

I hist Clouds Explained 
Mars, Nov. 10, A. P. (Asinine Piffle)— 
Dr. Gases of the Mars A. C. announced 

yesterday that he had unearthed new 
facts relative- to our neighboring planet, 
Earth. Martian scientists had long been 
puzzled by the immense 1 clouds of dust 
that hovered oxer the large cities ol the 
Karth every morning and evening. Spec- 
troscopial analysis, by Dr. Casse and his 
corps of an assistant, show that these 
dust clouds are caused by the myriad 
partides of shoe leather worn from the 
feet of the Karthians as they hurry to 
work in the morning and home again at 

Having completed what in the undergraduate opinion is his greatest service to the 

College, that ol getting the trustee approval 00 changing the name of this institution 

to MASSACHUSETTS STATU COLLEGE President Roacoc W. Thatcher has 

been granted a nine months lci\< nt absence to recover his health. It is character- 
istic ot Prexy to work under difficulties and finally to achieve his aim, always striving 
to make Massachusetts a letter college. Well docs he deserve a rest. 

When President Thatcher assumed his duties in the fall of 1027, the spirit among 

the teaching Staff and the trustees was one of pessimism and repression. Prexy 
brought with him a new outlook. Very soon he developed in the Hoard of Educa- 
tion and in the staff a new spirit of optimism, confidence and active co-operation. 
This new sentiment was Proxy's greatest contribution to the College, for from this 
co-operation has developed his other achievements. 

Through the efforts of President Thatcher, a five-year building program was in- 
stituted in 1929. This program is now in progress with North and South Colleges 

remodeled and the Physical Education Building rapidly nearing completion. Other 
projects to follow are alterations and additions to the Library, a new Administration 
Building, landscape Building, Physics Laboratory, and Home Economics Labora- 
tory. By being frank and optimistic. President Thatcher was able to promote this 
five year building program. In addition, Prexy personally was highly enthusiastic 
over the new Physical Education Building and personally made sp e eches and con- 
tacts to supplement the work of Professor Curry S. Hicks. 

President Thatcher is always stri\ing to strengthen, expand, and liberalize the 
curriculum. 'The course of study has been completely revised; main- new courses 
developed, and adjustments made to make the curriculum comparable to that of 
other colleges. A new plan for major courses has been adopted whereby majors arc- 
in divisions rather than in departments. 

I estimony of men on the teaching statT is that President Thatcher's faith, optimism 

and confidence have inspired more faculty loyalty and co-operation. Always fair 
and straightforward, he has cleared Up difficulties and promoted better group unity. 
Summarily, President RosCOC W. Thatcher is characterized by positive leadership. 
He has asked and has received. He has been consulted and has judged. He has 
decided and has accomplished. Yet throughout his work, he has been handicapped 
by poor health and almost negligible student support. So quietly has Prexv done his 
work that we did not realize it at the time; therefore, let us now stop and really 

appro iate him. 

We now have trustee approval of MASSACHUSETTS STATE COLLEGE. 
During three years of administration, President Thatcher has subtly developed an 
understanding among the faculty, alumni, trustees, and legislature which has led to 
the recent at don. A delk ate situation has been mastered, and now we arc practically 

Riding privileges for Military "majors" 
have been curtailed because the horses 
are too old to stand the pace. However 
CO-eds and sophomores are accumulating 
riding cards hand over fist. Is this fair? 
(Shut up, this is a rhetorical question and 
Wt are going .to answer it.) Of course it 
isn't fair to take away the riding privi- 
leges of a senior in favor of a sophomore 
but so far as the co-eds are concerned it's 
all right not even a horse gets too old 
to enjoy Roing places with a beautiful 
co-ed. The old philanderers; why can't 
they stay at home and givr the young 
men a chance? 

Do your bit toward making this 
College more efficient! Sign your name 
on the petition asking that all people 
desiring to strut down our sidewalks four 
or eight abreast l»e required to walk in 
the road where they will probably feel 
more at home; and where, if we are 
lucky, they will be run down by a truck. 
In the limbo of the long forgotten past 
there was a rule requiring that freshmen 
should tviss iipperclassinen, on the side 
walks, in single file. This rule is not in 
this year's Handbook for it was believed 
that the Frosh would be courteous 
enough to let uppcrclassmen pass them 
providing the up|ierclassinen said PIMM 
and went by in single file. 

Now that the ice is beginning to form 
on the pond our intellectually curious 
students will begin to have the time ol 
their voting lives throwing sti<ks and 
stones on the ice to test its hardness. We 

do not care for this method of satisfying 

the curiosity for its spoils the skating. 
The better wav is to walk out on the ice; 
that would l>e a real test of its strength 
for if it isn't strong enough to bear your 
weight you will fall through and make 
the front page of the Collegian and per- 
haps rate a column in the home town 
paper. If you drown we would even go 
to the extent of printing your picture, so 
go to it. 

We seem to be getting old, probabl 
from too much studying, for just the 
other dav we walked past two long piles 
of leaves and never even thought of 
scuffing through them until we had passed 
and it was too late. Do we hear anyone 
asserting, "It's about time you grew up!"? 

Every once in a while we hear some 
one (usually a woman) say, "I wish I 
were different. I want to be individual." 
Our advice to these people is try to be 
like others. The most individualistic 
person in the world is the average man. 

Life is just one disappointment after 
another: We arrived at the Horse Show 
last Saturday just in time to learn that 
everyone was through falling off his 



H?e Scribe 

As Ye Scribe was sitting in (lass a few 
days ago, the student next to him handed 
him a pa|x;r on which was written the 
following: "Those interested in taking 
a course in Latin for the rest of the year 
please sign below." Quite interesting, to 
say the least. Ye Scribe's curiosity was 
aroused. Then and there he decided to 
find out more about the proposed course. 
It developed that Professor Patterson, 
head of the language and literature de- 
partment, was the one who would take 
over the work of teaching the new course. 
So Ye Scribe set out to interview him 
about the affair. 

"What is the main idea or aim of this 
Latin course?" asked Ye Scribe upon 
seeing the Professor. 

"Well, we have found that there are 
many students who are majoring in 
languages who have had very little or 
no Latin at all. The course is primarily 
for those who have had none. Its aim is 
to improve the foundation of those 
students who come here to major in our 
language department so that they may 
easily see the relations between Latin 
and the modern English, French, Spanish 
and Italian languages." 

"Then you think that Latin is very 
good for those studying English?" pur- 
sued Ye Scril)c. 

"Yes. A person can learn more aliout 
the English language from Latin than 
from any other medium. Even studying 
English grammar and composition, in my 
opinion, is less profitable for an English 
student than a good course in Latin. 
Moreover, at the age that the students 
here find themselves, they are quite 
comp et e nt to see the close relation be- 
tween Latin and English." 

"How many students will you allow 
to take your course?" 

"Over sixty have signed up to take it 
but I think that we shall have to keep 
it down to a limit of twenty-five. Many 
who have signed to take it have had 
Latin before so perhaps they won't be so 
anxious for it." 

"How are you planning on conducting 

it?" questioned Ve Scribe. 

"The first six weeks will be given over 

to verbs, conjugations and vocabulary. 

Alter that, we shall begin on Caesar. By 
the end of the ve.u. I am hoping that we 
shall have read some of Cicero and 
Vergil. It will be primarily a reading 

"When do you expect to start?" was 
the next query. 

"As soon as we can," was the answer. 

"Didn't they have a course in Latin 
here several years ago? ' asked Ye Scribe. 

"Oh, yes. Dr. Ooodell, Dean Mills 
and ex-President Lewis all taught it. 
The College has always stood for the 
best in language teaching."

The Dean's Office has purchased new 
typewriter ribbons red ones so as to 
be prepared for the rapidly approaching 
Dean's Hoard. As a gesture of sympathy 
there ought to be a prize for the man 
who is below in the greatest number of 
subjects. The position of King of Dean's 
Hoard is a painful one at best and there 
should be some sort of consolation.

Last Saturday, at Annandale-on-Hud- 
son, New York, in the last meet of the 
year, the Massachusetts cross-country- 
team again went down to defeat, this 
time the victors were the St. Stephen 
harriers who managed to win the meet 
by three points, the score being 28-29. 
The rate was characterized by the ir- 
regularity of the runners, first a state- 
man leading a St. Stephens man and then 
the former dropping back and the latter 
taking his place. Captain Webber, how- 
ever, held the lead through the race, 
despite the efforts of Captain Met iuckian 
of the state college team who tried time 
and again to dislodge him. On the whole 
the race was hard-fought and very (lose 
over every inch of the difficult five mile 
course. According to Captain McGuckian 
the team was in the best possible sha|>e, 
its good condition due to the two weeks 
conscientious training previous to the 
meet. The summary:

Historically, this College has had onlv 
one curriculum and granted only one- 
undergraduate degree (bachelor of 
Science). In this curriculum, the work of 
the freshman year and i lost of that for 
the sophomore year has been uniform for 
all students. Specialization in the junior 
and senior years was formerly by depart- 
ments but some years ago was changed to 
"divisional specialization" in order to 
insure some breadth of training in the 
upper years, at least from the standpoint 
of faculty advice. 

Three unfortunate results of this situ- 
ation have grown increasingly apparent 
in recent years. These three difficulties 
are as follows: 

(a) The existence of only once cur- 
riculum, or route to the baccalaureate 
degree, has made it necessary to report 
all our students as pursuing the same 
course of study and that, of course, has 
been called a course in "agriculture." 
This has had many unfortunate effects, 
most of which have been frequently 
cited as arguments for a change in the 
name and scope of the College. 

(/>) The fixed curriculum of the fresh- 
man year has served as an excellent 
preparation for further study and a 
splendid introduction to the opportunities 
at the College lor instruction in the 
physical, biological and social sciences, 
but has given the freshman students no 
contact with the teaching faculties or 
opportunities for further study in agri- 
culture, horticulture and home economics. 
From this viewpoint the freshman cur- 
riculum has given a distorted introduction 
to the college courses. 

(c) Most modern professional edu- 
cation requires some practice or method- 
ology courses in the junior and senior 
years, based upon subject matter know- 
ledge acquired in preceding courses. Our 
former procedure of making the first two 
years' work chiefly general, thus limiting 

the acquirement of tpwial subject matter 
to the junior and senior years, has pre- 
vented the possibility of methodology 
courses in these years. Recently, a very- 
act ive demand has arisen for teacher 
training courses, for courses in methods 

of extension work, for farm management 

experience courses, etc. The present 
curriculum affords no place for these. 

To meet these difficulties, the new 
plan of freshman specialization was put 
into effect this year. It seems to be 
working out very satisfactorily.

Thomas I.. Hillings S.S.A. "3\ was the 
lucky winner of a barrel of apples. Of 
particular attraction was a hive of work- 
ing bees on display in this department. 

Especially clever was the work of 
Clyde M. Keene S.S.A. "M in the depart- 
ment of olericulture. Called "Featuring 
the Vitamin Review with Joe Cabbage 
and his Health Orchestra of the Dine- 
Well," this display represented three 
Vitamin families (dolls i eating their 
appropriate foods at miniature tables in 
a cabaret. A chorus performance was 
being given on a stage before which 
miniature orchestra played. Another 
excellent showing in this department was 
a diminutive farm perfectly laid out 
with its house, barns, gardens, etc. Il- 
lustrating the various ways of treating 
common vegetables a kitchen presented 
a third feature of the vegetable depart- 

The entire horticultural show was 
SUCCessfuly wound up Sunday evening 
with an auction at which William E.

ing figure, and resting on a polished green 
base. The cup will be awarded annually 
to the fraternity excelling in a competition 
continuing throughout the entire year 
including, in addition to athletics, aca- 
demic activities and scholarship. The 
cup will remain in possession of the 
winner during the next year. The fra- 
ternity winning the cup three times will 
obtain permanent possession of it. 

For each activity an ecpial number of 
points are being offered which will make 
it necessary for the winner to gain points 
in at least two divisions. Scholastic 
ratings for each of the three terms will 
be given 17, 10, and 5 points respectively 
for the fraternities of the three highest 
scholastic averages. There will be five 
events in intramural sports: in the fall 
term, soccer; during the winter season, 
basketball; in the spring baseball, tennis. 
and a relay. The points awarded for 
first, second, and third places will be 
10, . r >, and 1. The academic events arc 
two: an interfraternity singing competi- 
tion and vaudeville sketches presented 
on "Stunt Night" for the benefit of the 
annual "Dad's Day." 

These events have always been popular. 
This has been the first attempt to con- 
solidate the activities and to offer such a 
grand award. The new system will place 
the emphasis on the fraternity excelling 
in more than one field.

To the Fditor of the Collegian: 

Since the communication in the ('<>/- 
legian last week was written by "Co eds," 
I feel that the opinion ol the men stu 
dents ought to be expressed. When one 
goes into the cafeteria with a friend and 
hears a crowd of how ling maniacs striking 
their glasses with various and sundry 
silver implements, howling "Oil's" and 
"All's" in a manner which suggests the 
chorus of devils in "Dr. Faustus"; 
clamoring, hooting and hissing, as if 
they were at the far famed State Theater, 
one wonders how he has been able to 
tolerate the "Wheats" as long as he has. 

After the meal is over, try to withdraw 
with dignity. It is necessary to push 
one's way through a group of jostling 
and swearing "Wheats." If it is possible 
to get through the crowded hallway 
without losing either one's car or one's 
temper, it is again necessary to crawl 
over more "Wheats" who are sprawled 
over the steps. After descending the 
steps, one must run the gauntlet of com- 
menting groups of "Wheats." 

You may say that this situation is 
exaggerated. Then eat in the "Cafe" 
yourself. Try to talk to a friend above 
the din of boorish laughter and of (halter 
ing glasses. Then try and get your coat 
without being Hepped on by a "Wheat."

To the Editor of the Collegian: 

Recent edition* of the Collegian con 

tatned the results of the cross-country

write ups? No, it is nurelv mentioned 

that sin h and such a team won. All of

are not even |iven spate except for the

Tie Score as Keith Tennis 

Tight ill Deadlock 

last Saturday, at Wilbraham, the 
Massachusetts freshman football team in 
its fust outside game ol the season lied 
the Wilbraham Academy football team 
on Corbtn field, the score for the contest 
being 8-8. Wilbraham was the first to 
score when, in the first quarter, aftei a 
."i yard run through tackle by C'halfont, 
Captain Koss received the ball and 
scampered around the left end for a 
60-yard dash and the first score. In the 
second period, however, the frosh waited 
little* time and few opportunities to tally. 
After intercepting a Wilbraham pass, the 
slate college frosh brought the ball Ironi 
their own 30 sard line to their opponents 
20-yard marker. Theie a scries of line 
bucks netted but a few yards, and then 
the Wilbraham team took possession ol 
the ball. On their first down, (argill 
dropped back to punt, but the kick nevci 

teacaed iU destination for Solo mo a 

broke through and blocked the punt, 

falling on the ball in back of the Wilbia 

ham goal line thus making the only 

touchdown for the fiosh .im\ tiling the 

score. The remaining periods weic- s|>ent

In the game to be played this coming 
Saturday on Alumni Field on the occasion 
ol Dad's \>a\, the \i rwica football team 
will find the Massac husetts aggregation 
in the same fighting mood as it was when 
it lined up against the Amherst College 
team some two weeks ago I tis expected 
that the vaisitv bac k tit Id ami line which 

was forced to sit on the bench last we-ck 

at the Springfield game will be function-

tions and hopes «>f defeating the Nor- 

wichers are running high in view of the 
fact thai it is estimated that the Vermont 
team has a we-akei aquad than (he state 
College team, the- estimation being based 

on comparative scores and past experience 

this fall. 

Probably the most reasonable estimate 
of the worth of the two teams is seen in 
the scons established by each against 
the- Middle bury team ,nu\ against the 
Worcester Tech aggregation The Massa-

Midcllebury, the- score being 7 (I, 
Norwich succumbed to the lattei bv a

President and Mis. u w. Tnatcaer 

ami Mis Elisabeth Robertson were the 
guests at a formal dinner given at the 

I Ionic-stead last Thursday evening. 

To the Editor of the Collegian: 

I have been a continuous rea«ler of my 
college paper under its changing names 
since '71 published its commencement 
offering as the Index. I was interested 
in your story of Japan and its co nn ec t ion 
with M.A.C. based on Prof, brooks' 
story, printed in your issue e>f ( )c tober lb. 
There is romance in the founding of the 
Agricultural College of Sapporo. Japan, 
by Prexy Clark and his chosen group 
from the early classes of M.A.C. Al 0BM 
of the small group now remaining of '71. 
I may be pardoned if I am jealous of the 
part in this historic epis ode played by 
our classmate, William Wheeler of Con- 
cord. Through no intention on the part 
of my friend Brooks. I am sure, the story 
fails to give credit to Wheeler as the 
second President of Sapporo College. 
Our Class History records that on Presi- 
dent Clark's return from Japan to Am- 
herst in 1S77, Wheeler became president 
of the new college, carrying on sin . em 
fully till in turn he gave place te> Prof. 
Hrooks who co mp let e d the twelve year 
period after which this enterprise began 
its ind epe nd en t control. Truly an inter 
e-sting chapter of international good will. 
Sincerely yours.

"We specialize in the wholly impossible 
doing the things that no one else can do." 
An adventure into international good- 
will is the second feat to attempt. The 
college campus is a good place to foster 
this adventure. You can not properly 
rise to the spirit of Armistice Day with- 
out doing everything to further construc- 
tive good-will. Tariff bills constructed 
wholly for benefit of America lack this 
world vision. Also such tariffs create a 
world of countries inimical to each other. 
If we are to truly progress we must 
plan to build life. We have thus far 
spent our energies on the external, 
toward the creation of invention and dis- 
covery. The major minds have been 
turned toward finding out the structure 
of the universe. Now is the time for the 
college to show its real purpose, the 
creation of a knowledge of life planning. 
The present philosophy of the race mis- 
takes the things of life for the significance 
of life. Our cities are full of mechanical 
and industrial marvels which build reams 
of cotton cloth, etc., but fail to build men. 
Lastly, we might seek adventure in the 
spiritual world, for we shall never build 
an ideal state unless we find God.

Many winners of the first show were 
again sin ccssful at the second of the local 
horse shows last Saturday afternoon. 
Some of the events were exceedingly 
close. The last event, jumping open to 
all, ended with a tie for first and a triple 
tie for third and was decided by the toss 
of a coin. As usual the jumping events 
were the most thrilling, lint the horse- 
manship events were also full of interest. 
This show contained seven events, one 
more than the first, an event being added 
for sophomore members of the R.O.T.C. 
The result of the events were as follows: 

1. For enlisted men, horses to be 
drawn by lot, jumps not to exceed three 
feet. Performance only to count. The 
winners in order were: Strong, Hummel 
and Parent. 

2. For sophomores, horses to be drawn 
by lot and shown at walk, trot and walk. 
Horsemanship only was to count. Cone 
was the winner. Second and third plates 
were taken by Edward Fawcett and 
Malcolm Stewart. 

8. Event for co-eds, horses drawn by 
lot and shown at walk, trot and canter. 
Miss Healey tex>k first place. Miss Pike 
and Miss Munson were second and third 
place winners. 

4. Jumping open to seniors and junior 
members of the R.O.T.C. Horses were 
drawn by lot. Jumps were not to exceed 
three feet. Leonard Salter was first. 
The other placet were won by Daniel 
Darling and Robert Tetro. 

.">. Event for civilian road hacks at 
walk, trot and canter. Horsemanship 
only counted. Miss Betty Ford on dinger 
owned by Mrs. Thompson was first. 
Mrs. Ilogle and Miss Henrietta I Vase 
were the other winners. 

0. Senior and junior horsemanship 
event. As in the other events horses 
were drawn by lot and shown at a walk 
trot and canter. First place was taken 
by George Flood. Daniel Darling and 
Robert Tetro were the other winners. 

7. Open jumping event. Winners of 
first, second and third plates were: 
Private Creary, Major Bradford, Captain 
Sumner, respectively.

President Shows Why Name Should Be Changed to 
Massachusetts State College 

In my inaugural address and in each of the three annual reports which I have pre 
> nted t<> your Hoard since I became President of the College, I have alluded to the 

question of the name and scope of the College as one of the important problems with 

which its administrative officers are faced. 1 have stated successively some of the 

general phases of this problem; pointing out that from the viewpoint of the whole of 
tlie institution's activities in the fields of resident teaching, extension teaching, re 

search and control service, the present name is not a misnomer, but that this name 
does not give a correct impre salon of the type and scope of the collegiate educational 

program which is now and for many years has he-en offered on the campus. I Stated 
in my last annual report that I believed "thai the question at issue is 
whether, in the luture, the College shall be narrowly vocational or professional in 
the field ol agriculture alone, or shall serve as the land-grant college in Massat luisetts 
tn provide for the liberal and practical education of the industrial (lasses for the 
several pursuits and professions of life,' as indicated by the original Act ot Congress 
which provided for the establishment of these col leges ." To this I might have added 
niv belief that the name ot the College should indicate as accurately as possible which 
ol these two functions the institution is to serve, 

'•ii several occasions 1 hive expressed my opinion that the appropriate time for 
final consideration and derision of these questions would be when the report is made 
public of the survey which has been made by the Bureau of Education of the I'nited 
States Department of the Interior of the present development and probable future 
poiii us of these "land-grant colleges." That report is not yet available, although it 
i- expected to appear in printed form in the very near future. In the meantime. 
however, certain events have occurred which lead me to believe that action should 
be taken on the question of the name of the College at once, in order to clarify in the 
minds of the public the place in the state's educational system which this institution 
now occupies and is to fill in the future. Additional expressions of sentiment and 
Wishes concerning a possible change in name have been received from students. The 
Associate Alumni has conducted a formal canvass of its members which has indicated 
their general concensus of opinion concerning the matter. The more important 
event, however, is the initiative petition to the Legislature by a group of citizens, 
for the establishment of a "University of Massachusetts" at which many of the 
f, |'|>ortunities which are now offered at this College shall be provided elsewhere. 
Tlii- proposal indicates clearly the need for a lietter general knowledge of the facili- 
ty's lor collegiate education which are now provided by the Commonwealth at this 
( ollege and seems to me to make it important that our own problem with ref eren ce 
to the name and scope of this College should be settled before any other similar 
enterprise is entered upon by the Commonwealth. 

The Scope of the College 
I he original charter of the College, approved by the General Court in 1Kb.'*, de- 
clared that "The leading object of the college shall be to teach subjects relating to 
nit lire and the mechanic arts, so as to promote liberal and practical education. 
Its curriculum may include other scientific and classical studies and shall include 
ITJ tactics." 
1 his statement of the scope of the collegiate teaching work of the College has 
remained unchanged from that time to the present. Subseetuent Acts ol Con gre ss 
a »d of the General Court of Massachusetts have added to the original function of 
teaching on the campus the other duties of the College; namely, experiment station 
f< h, regulatory and control service for enforcement of special laws, and agricul- 
tural extension teaching off the campus. Hut the original statement of purpose and 
ts of collegiate teaching has remained unchanged for more than half a century. 
Under this charter, there have been developed excellent courses in various major 
subjects which have a direct application in farming operations and others which 
repare for various agricultural business. Prior to the World War these were all 
ear courses entitling the student to the degree of Bachelor of Science upon their 
i-lactory completion. More recently, however, there was established the "Two 
> "''■»<" Course in Practical Agriculture," now known as "Stockbridge School of Agri- 
re" This two-year course of intensive study of specific vocational subjects has 
<»ne to be recognized, not only here in Massachusetts but in many othei states, 
more feasible method of training for general farm operations than is a four-year 
' leading to a degree, for which many non-vocational academic subjects are a 
■vary requirement. The latter have in themselves a great cultural and eitizen- 
value and are a recognized part of every course in collegiate education leading 
bachelor's degree. Bui the shorter, more intensive, and more highly specific 
ning of the x'ocational course is now coming to be very generally recognized is a 
desirable post-high school training for many " ind us t rial pursuits of life" inc hid 
,n 8 agriculture. 

It may be said truthfully then that this College, throughout its e-ntire- histnr>, has 
i( lidly fulfilled its leading function of "teaching subjects related to agriculture." 


Committee of Faculty and Trustees 
to Carry On in President's Absence 

A committee consisting of F. J. Sievers, 
Directoi ol tin- Experiment Station ami 
of the Graduate School \\ . A. Munson, 
Director ot Extension Service; W. L. 
Machmer, the Dean "t the College-, R. 
II. Verbeck, Directoi ol Short Courses; 
I C. Kiiiiuv. Treasurer of the College; 
and U. 1). Hawley, Secretary of the 
College, will administer the affairs ol the 
College during the forthcoming absence 
oi the President, hue. tor Sievers will 
be chairman of this committee. This 
committee has existed informally h>i the 
past two years having served in an ad 

viswis capacity to the President. 

1 he Trustees have also appointed an 

executive committee of then board con 

sitting ol Hon. George II. Kllis, James F. 

Bacon, and Philip F. Whitroore which 
will co-operate with the administrative 

Committee of the College- in dealing with 

state otiii i.ds .uid the General Court in 
budget, legislative and other matters 
which require official action by these 

Milt it has developed also splendid 

course-sin "othei scientific studies." Ten 
thirty years m mote, there haw been 

opportunities at this College tor major 
work in botany, chemistry, entomology, 

economics and sociology and landscape 

architect lire which have been known the- 
worid over as turning out men most 
excellently trained for scientific work in 

those- several snide. More recently, the 

newer sciences, such as bacteriology and 

physiology and newer phases < >t agricul- 
ture and horticulture, as well as a col 

legiate course in home economics, have 
been provided. 'These have all been de- 
veloped unele-r the- authority of Un- 
original charter as a legitimate- part of 
the commission which it imposes upon the 
college "to promote liberal and practical 
education"; and in harmony with the 
development of the "land grant colleges" 
in other states. It might be said, how- 
ever, that many others of these colleges 
have gone much larther than has Massa 
chusetts in developing courses of study 
in "classical" subjects. 

To change the- program of the- collegiate 
work of the College now in such a way 
as to make- it narrowly professional or 
vocational in the field ol agriculture alone 
would be a limiting of the original com- 
mission or charter of the institution in a 
way which the experience of the- past titty 
years c aunot possibly justify and would 
impose a task upon the faculty and 
administrative officers which it would be 

impossible- to carry out without wrecking 
the splendid structure which has been 
built up here and which has served t he- 
educational needs of the youth ol the 

Commonweal! h so well. 

'The Name of the College 

The College has developed as I have 

indicated under its present name of 

"Massachusetts Agricultural College." 

The reason for the- original adoption oi 

that name is known to all those who arc 
familiar with its early history, namely, 
in order that it might indicate clearly 
that the function of teaching "subjects 
related to mechanic arts," which in most 
ol the- state-s of the Union is assigned 
along with that of teaching "subjects re- 
lated to agriculture" to the "land grant 
college" in that siatc-, is in Massachusetts 
not assigned to this College, but else 

where, that is, to Massachusetts Institute 
ol Technology. 

Several times during the- past, there- 
have- been more or less active agitations 
among Students and friends of the College 
for a change in its name, in order that 
the name might more- accurately repre- 
sent the- collegiate teaching whie h WSS in 
progress on the- campus. 

Many ol the- arguments against the 

present name, to the effect that it hampers 
opportunity for employment of alumni.

It is wit h vi-i s great reluctance I have to present the l ol lowing statement and 

Some- five years ago I suffered seriously from the results of a high blood pressure, 
At that time, I took a rest lioui administrative work .md medical treatment and 
made- a very satisfactory recovery. Ilenec, I came t" my present position with con*

confidence in myself and in tin- College dor example, I made 136 public addresses 
oil tin- campus during my first l"> months as President), I suffered a rerorienee of 

my former trouble. At that time, physicians Warned me- that it I did not "slow up" 

I inigh: not live- more than two years at most. 

Since that time, I have tried to follow as reasonable a program ol work as possible, 
but recently very distressing symptoms oi overwork have- developed. I have tos 

suited with three sepal. lie- physicians, two oi tliein specialists e,| recognised high 

professional standing, with the- following results. It is deal that I have ,m internal 
disarrangement ol certain vital organs, which may (or may not) be the direct (as 
indirect) cause of my physical trouble and which may (oi may not) be remedied by 
proper treatment followed by a period ot propel physical exercise ami mental rest. 
Tin- expressions in parenthesis arc- divergent opinions ol different si hoofa of medical 
tl ght. There is absolute a gr ee m ent, however, that it la fool h.uelv foi me to con- 
tinue my present routine ot lilc 

The- final result is that I believe that I should spend senile time M lour weeks in 
a hospital, followed by a period ol several weeks or perhaps some months ol a it-gu 
I. H routine Ol life which will be impossible if I am on duty at the College-. 

Hence, I must eithei te-nde-r my resignation .ts President ol the- College, in order to 

permit you to sec lire other and more- satisfactory St i v ie e at once, or ask lor a leave- 

oi absence for purposes of recuperation, with the- hope ami e xp ectation that there 

after I will be able to carry on the- duties of the- office to the- Satisfaction ol invself 

ami your Board. On this latter point, I am assured by physicians in whom I have 
confidence that there is every reason tor confident expectation that it I now take the 

proper course of treatment and rest, ami later adopt a reasonable regime "I life and 
activity, I will be able to render as inary yea is ol additional service to the institution 
as normally would be expected from a man ot my age. 

I am, therefore, requesting that you grant me a so called "sick leave" ot leave ol 
absence for an indefinite pe-riod beginning December first. The- prognostication of it may rec|iiire five or six inonl lis lo lep.ot the damage already

Assuring you of my very sincere regret that it has become necessary foi me to 

request even a temporary break in our most pleasant relationships, I an

keeps aw. iv students who would come to it if it had another name, limits the 

possibility of securing outstanding scientists and scholars for its faculty, eti , etc, 
are easily answered by the- simple statement that the- institution as it i^ (including 

its name; is what the < Hum ion we-.ilt Ii of Massachusetts desires to oiler in the- fie- hi ol 

Mate supported collegiate education and anyone- may t omc to it ot not as he c hoo se s , 

but if lie- does Come he must SjCOept its opportunities ami limitations as the- state's 

offering to him. 

A much more- se-rious argument against the pre-scnl name- is that, to those offic ials 

of the State who< omc into off* c- without previous knowledge of the charter, functions, 
and history ol the ( 'o I lege ami who as legislators vote upon financial and othei matters 
affecting it or who administer state regulations which affect its routine transactions, 

t he name- of the ( olh -^c- gives a w rung impression is to its propet s< ope and ,h I iv it us 

As i re suit . the Trustees an' I President oi the College are often suspected and s, mu- 
tinies openly accused of making requests lor support which is out ol proportion to 
the- needs of the institution or ol attempting to expand the institution bevond its 
properly authorized field or in excess of the needs and wishes ol the C om m on we a lth. 

This situation has led to much i-mbarrassmeiit and serious difficulties in the .i<\ 
ministration of the ( o'legc at various times in the- past. 

More-over, in the- past, there- have- been attempts- by different groups of eiti/eus 

to sec ure- legislative- action looking toward the- offering by the- Commonwealth of 
Mass.ii luisetts of additional opportunities for colleegiate education, ami these citizens 

have- invariably expressed great surprise- to le-.irn t hat the State- was already providing 
most of the de-m-d OppOftunitWS at a c olle^c whose- name- indicated that it olh nil 

education in only one field. 

H owe v e r, the College has d e vel oped to its present splendid plan- in the est ee m e>f 
every one who knows what excellent work it is doing without any change in its name, 

and it would seem that from the- standpoint of its own welfare alone-, it might easily 
continue to Operate under the- name with which it has made such progress and ->o 
excellent a reputation. 

On the- e>ther hand, I am convinced that the- time- has come when for the s.ike- of 
clarifying the position which the College occupies in tin- State's educational system 

and of remedying the confusion w Inc h exists ill the- minds of the public as to Its aims, 

purposes, .md duties, its name should be- c hanged,

President Shows Why Name Should Be Changed To 
Massachusetts State College 

(Continued from previous Pafte) 

which might be made available here at comparatively slight cost to the Common- 
wealth, indicates the need for a better understanding of our relationship to and place 
in the educational program of the State. 

My belief is that no change in the charter or policies of the institution is needed 
in order to permit it to perform the functions which the Acts of Congress and of the 
General Court of Massachusetts have authorized and facilities for which wise and 
careful administration of the College in the past have developed. But I do believe 
that a change in the name of the institution is imperative in order that these functions 
and facilities may be properly understood and appreciated by the people of the State 
and by their elected representatives and administrative officials. 

What the new name might best be is of course a question upon which there can 
be a variety of opinions. It would be out of place here to enter into an extended dis- 
cussion of the advantages and disadvantages of each of the many possibilities. 

It seems to me to be fairly clear, however, that the name which will most satis- 
factorily establish the proper position of this institution with reference to other 
educational activities of the Commonwealth and which, in my opinion, will serve 
best to clarify the situation that now exists and best prepare the way for continued 
successful service by the College to the Commonwealth, is "Massachusetts State 


I therefore recommend that the necessary legal steps be taken, at the earliest 
possible moment, to change the name of the institution from "Massachusetts Agri- 
cultural College" to "Massachusetts State College." I believe that in taking such 
steps, no change should be made in the present charter, or legal statement of object- 
ives of the College; and that it should be generally understood that no such change 
is contemplated unless some new situation with reference to the needs for state- 
supported collegiate education in Massachusetts should arise.

New Building Harmonizes with Old 
and Relieves Congestion 

Those who have had occasion to visit 
I laber Laboratory this fall doubtlessly 
have noticed the new addition which has 
recently been added to the north end of 
what is commonly called the Cold Storage. 

For many years the pomology depart- 
ment has conducted class exercises in 
Fisher Laboratory in cramped quarters 
sad under conditions of more or less 
confusion clue to the multiplicity ot 
activities which had to be carried on in 
the same room as the classes. Also the 
space for storing the fruit from the 
College orchards was inadequate. In 
order to relieve the existing congestion 
the legislature last spring appropriated 
SH.OOO for the construction of a packing 
shed .md storage cellar. 

The building is a story and a half 
structure, thirty feet wide and fifty feet 
long, with outside walls of brick veneer. 
The lines and proportions of the new 
building harmonize splendidly with those 
ot the old. Much credit is due Mr. 
Clarence Jewett, supeiintendent ol b..ild- 
ings, who designed and supervised the 
c o n stru ction of the new addition, for 
erecting a building which architecturally 
at least has the appearance of being a 
part of the original structure. 

The basement ot the new packing 
house is constructed of concrete walls 
insulated with three inches of cork 
finished cm the inside with a thin layer 
of cement. This storage cellar bee I 

capacity of approximately 1000 bushels of

Gains Success 

Presentation of "Rip Van Winkle" 
Is Decided Hit at Social In ion 

Hilarity was the dominant character- 
istic of Professor Charles II. Patterson's 

presentation ot "Rip Van Winkle" at 

last Friday evening's Social Union Entei 

t. eminent . Narrated first In Washington 

Irving, dramatised by Dion Bourcicauit 
and most lamousfy produced by Joseph 
Jefferson, "Rip Van Winkle" is now 
counted among America ■ most repre 
tentative plays. Professor Patterson's 
reading of the comedy, though based 
upon Jefferson's production, is of his own 

origination and has been given by him 
out ol town on various occasions lor 

several years. 

Much of the merriment of the drama 

is due to "Kip's" weakness lor good beer 
as well as to his various .-c hemes for out- 
witting his wife, Cretclicn. One of the 

high points of the comedy occurred when 

"Kip" attempted to get into the hoUM 
b> way of the window only to find < ireti li- 
en's hands in his hair. Far from amateur- 
ish was Professor Patterson's portrayal 
ol "Kip" trying to get his joints into 
working order after bis twenty years' 

Pathetic seems, excellently acted, were 

not infrequent in the dramatisation, 

among them the seine- in which "Rip" is 
driven from home out into the storm, 
the- episode of his not being able to find 
either home or friends, and the OTCasiori 
of his ilisappointincnt in finding that his 
dearly loved daughter "Meenie," docs 
not recognize him. Kemarkable WW 
Professor Patterson's versatility in chang- 
ing from the characterization of mirthful 
"Kip" to that of pleading (.re-tchen. or 
to that of brutal Derrick. 

Finally, human interest and sympathy 
was e roweled into every line of the play.

Third School Opened 

For Poultry Breeders 

Large Number Take Part in Confer- 
ence of Poultry Men 

Professor Charles II. Patterson, last 
Friday evening, made the "Rip Van 
W mkle" of legend and story a real 
and living character for us. 

Over one hundred student poultry 
breeders Irom the New England States, 
New York, and Pennsylvania attended 
the first annual Poultry Breeders' School 
held at this College last week. After a 
careful consideration of the merits of the 
two previous Poultry Breeders' Confer- 
ences, held in 192K and MHg, the Poultry 
department, headed by Prof. John C. 
Graham, organized an actual school for 
this year's gathering. 

Twelve lessons, ranging from the study 
of the cell as the unit of heredity to a 
consideration of the known inheritance ot 
the several poultry characters, consti- 
tuted the major part of the course. 
Classes were- conducted on a one- hour 
period basis, a part of each be-ing set 
aside for discussion and for practice- 
work. These- e lasses were supplemented 
by two evening ntssioni at which con- 

side-ration was given to general breeding 
te»pies, an application of bre-e-ding laws 

.md a demonstration. 

Instruction was provided by Dr. II. II. 
Plough, of Amherst College; by Dr. H. 
I), Coodale of Mt. Hope Farm. William- 
town 'formerly in charge of the experi- 
mental work in poultry breeeling at this 
College); and by Dr. F. A. Hays, at 
present in charge of this work. On 

W edne s da y evening Colonel E. Parmalee 

Prentice, proprietor of Mt. Hope Farm, 
addressed the School. Mr. I rank Piatt, 
editor of the American Poultry Journal, 
reviewed the transition which has taken 
place in poultry breeding. 

In discussing next year's school, it was 
brought out that a continuation of the 
study of the fundamentals is most de- 
sired. Kemarkable was the demonstra- 
tion of the character and the: earnestness 
of the breeder students in the-ir appreci- 
ation of their positions as leaden among 
the breeders of the country. Evident was 

their realization and appreciation of the 
valuable service which this College is pro- 
viding them.

Isn't really quite fair. 

Sell -confidence is a wonderful thing. 
There is the girl who feels that she is the 
most beautiful co-ed at M.S.C. and who 
candidly admits her superiority. There 
Ore times when we are inclined to agree 
with her belief. 


In the first place, let us hope that the name "World Aggie Night" is obsolete. 
May the alumni, in the future, celebrate "World Massachusetts Night," or better, 
"World Massachusetts Day." 

This year, five of the alumni meetings were not held on November 13, World 
Aggie Night, for some reason or other. There seems to us to be no incentive in hav- 
ing alumni groups throughout the world meet in the middle of the week, a day on 
which there are no athletic contests, nor even a radio program. The radio, which is 
the most convenient connection between alumni groups and the college for such an 
affair, should augment the bond of a common Alma Mater. 

Alumni meetings in various parts of the world, held on the same evening, are a 
wonderful advantage in keeping the graduates of Massachusetts in close contact 
with each other and with the college. There is a spirit of common fellowship at each 
meeting, and the knowledge that other groups are united in the same interests com- 
bine to make an impression on those present at the meetings. But it seems that the 
alumni groups, having no special incentive to meet on a given date, are getting inde- 
pendent and this bond of common interest is being destroyed. 

In our opinion, Fall Home-coming Day and World Massachusetts Night should 
be combined into a "World Massachusetts Day," on which day all Bay State men 
would become conscious of their Alma Mater and either visit the college or attend an 
alumni banquet. This day shou.d be as Alumni Home-coming Day is now — at the 
time of a good football game on Alumni Field. An alumni banquet on campus should 
be simultaneous with those in other parts of the world. Time for a radio program 
could be obtained by making reservations in advance. A very interesting radio 
program would be possible, including a short account of the afternoon's game by an 
alumnus, the latest news of the College, short talks, and a short entertainment by 
the undergraduates. Such a program would furnish incentive for alumni meetings 
and a real bond would exist between the alumni groups and the present college. 

Possibilities for such an event are manifold. There should be a greater number of 
alumni back to the campus and the banquets throughout the country should be 
more uniform and successful. Surely one strong alumni day would be more effective 
than two attempts at reunion. "World Massachusetts Day" should develop to be a 
really significant day on the calendar of the College. 

Our impression of Sunday Chapel 
The choir stands and sings 
With open mouths like O's; 
but the words they are singing 

Nobody ,nows. 

Once we tried to be excused from Chapel 
on the ground that we were atheistic 
but the alibi met with scant consideration. 

The devoted Christians cry , 

As they madly toll the bell, 

"There can be no middle ground 

Between Paradise and Hell." 


In an adjoining column there is a communication in regards to the establishment 
of a crew at Massachusetts. The author has worked on the idea for almost a year 
now, has interviewed many rowing enthusiasts and is absolutely sure that if the 
students desire it we can have a crew. His communication gives an excellent sum- 
mary of the problems involved and the means of overcoming them. It now rests 
upon the Student body to make a response. The communication column is open to all. 

The aftermath of the rope-pull last Saturday was highly regrettable. The sopho- 
mores won and, by all rules of sportsmanship, should have been allowed the rope, a 
meager reward for their efforts. Instead, the freshmen, with characteristic youthful 
unpctllQUSncil, dashed in to steal their souvenirs. The resulting fight was a disgrace 
to the ( otkgc in general and the freshman class in particular. The stands were filled 
with parents; what did they think of such rough-housing? True, the match did fur- 
nish a bit of i vitement but it ill represented the college, ruined clothing, almost 
tore down the goal posts and worried many a parent. It was pure luck that nothing 
serious resulted. In the future, let us be a little more refined, a little more considerate 
and much more mature in our actions. 

We are usually not one who votes for 
the retaining of old traditions that are 
threadbare and have outlived their use- 
fulness. We do not believe in the rule 
about freshmen not smoking on campus, 
or in the saluting of Senate members, or 
wearing frosh caps more than one term. 
However, we are heartily in favor of the 
rope pulls and the former custom which 
said that freshmen should share the side- 
walk with upperclassmen. 

We wept no salty tears when the 
Banquet Scrap was discarded — we rather 
enjoyed the two we participated in— but 
it was so burdened down with rules that 
most of the scrapping was between the 
officials. It was also an event that was 
not much enjoyed by the rest of the 
student body. 

The spontaneous battle that arose after 
the rope-pull on Saturday may grow into 
an interclass scrap that will prove an 
effective substitute for the Banquet 
Scrap. The Rope Battle was interesting 
to both participants and spectators; it 
was spontaneous; and it was free from 
upperclass interference. If a similar 
battle takes place next year the event 
ma> grow into a custom that will provide 
the much sought for class scrap in a more 
satisfactory manner than any propositi 
which can be thoughtfully presented by 
either the Senate or Adelphia. 

Are the flags in Rowker auditorium in 
the right positions? The question hinges 
on whether or not they are behiml the 
footlights. If they are not behind the 
footlights their positions should be re- 
versed. We walked down to the front of 
the auditorium to see but we were un- 
able to make up our mind. 

Social Union programs have always had the reputation of providing excellent 
entertainment and Professor Patterson's reading o! "Kip Van Winkle," last Friday, 
was one of the best that has been offered in four years. Those who attended were 
not only overjoyed at the performance but left the hall with a glow of pride in the 
success of one of their own professors. It increased their pride in the faculty of their 
college and it explained why the tradition that "Pat is a wonderful actor" has per- 
sistently been handed down from preceeding classes who have been privileged to 
witness similar triumphs. With such talent available, everyone would be deeply 
appreciative if another reading by Prof. Patterson could be arranged sometime in 
the near future. 

Entertainment last Saturday night was provided to assembled parents and stu- 
dents by the various fraternities. During the four years in which Dad's Day has 
been in existence on campus, these fraternity "stunts" have been constantly im- 
proving. Furthermore, each year it is more difficult for the fraternities to find appro- 
priate acts. Thus, in spite of the obstacles, we find that the entertainment on Dad's 
Day is a real demonstration of the inert originality and dramatic power of students 
of Massachusetts. 

In our opinion the fraternity skits for 
the Dad's Day program have been 
steadily improving in the last few years. 
It seems obvious that men make better 
women than women make men. There 
were a number of little side references in 
the skits that would have been censored 
from the Collegian. The elephants were 
not used to our cold climate — they wore 
their heavy woolen underwear. We wish 
the bicycle and the mono'? (cycle had 
been more in evidence. 


|?e Scribe 

To Iind the agronomy laboratory in 
Stotkbridge II. ill, you must go down to 
the basement and turn down the corridor 
leading to the rear of the building, on the 
left side of which corridor is the room 
you are set-king. Walk right in, turn to 
your right, proceed down to the end of 
the room and there you will find a man 

very buss performing some research 

operations. This gentleman is none other 
than Dr. Erich Hoffman. 'Sou know- 
nothing about him? Well, this is what 
Ye S<ribe learned when he in t er vi e w ed 
the reserved investigator. 

Frankfort -on-the Main was < Wiethe's 
birthplace and also Dr. Hoffman's. 
There the Doctor spent his first under- 
graduate days in the University. \ cry 
interesting they were, too. Later, he 
studied at the University of Halle where 
he got his "diploma" (equivalent to a 
master's degree in this country) and his 
Ph.D. for work in agronomy. Last year, 
he studied at Berlin. At present, he is 
the holder of an exchange student's 
scholarship at this College. 

Ye Scribe was interested in finding out 

what the Doctor had clone for extra- 
curricular activity in his university life 
so he found out that he had been presi- 
dent of the Peutscher Slutlrntschaft, the 

National Federation of German Students, 

a very powerful organization in Germany. 
The membership of this organization is 
comp osed of German student in (ierman 
universities in Germany, Austria, Czecho- 
slovakia and Danzig. It is very potent 
in (ierman political life. Thus, as presi- 
dent of this organization, Herr Hoffman 
was a very busy man politically. All of 
last year during his stay in Berlin was 
taken up with political affairs and con- 

Dr. Hoffman also explained a little 
about (ierman fraternities to Ye Scribe. 
These are of many different types, 
according to the Doctor. He belonged to 
a type called the Corps, a type interested 
in education and social service. Others 
are interested in science, politics, liter- 
ature, and so forth. Most of the fra- 
ternities require their members to wear 
colored caps and tri-colored ribbons across 
their chests. 

The most interesting part about fra- 
ternities, however, is the method used to 
determine whether a neophyte is worthy 
to be initiated. In Dr. Hoffman's fra- 
ternity, the pledge was compelled to take 
part in nine fencing duels without flinch- 
ing a bit. The Doctor himself admits of 
partaking in at least twelve of these 
encounters. To prove it, he showed Ye 
Scribe the results of not Aim hing. The 
whole idea of the thing, really harmless, 
is to find out whether a man is good 
enough to be admitted to meml>ership in 
the fraternity. 

Some of the comments that the Doctor 
made concerning different things were 
that students in American college* and 
universities knew each other more than 
the students in Germany, that one gets 
the impression that America is preparing 
for war when he first m-c-s the amount ot 
military training that is going on in a 
su pp os ed ly p e ac e f ul country, that the 
sjMirts the students like differ only in 
that they do not play our football or 
baseball, and that American students are 
j compelled to attend classes, a vcr\ un- 
common thing in Germany. 



Several year* ago, Mr^. Elizabeth Be 
Irasch left by will a bequest ot (M 

million dollars to establish in honor 

her husband, "The Herman Fran 

Foundation for Research in Chemistry 

Applied to Agriculture." The trust com 
pany which administers Mrs. French 
estate asked a committee of which I Wai 
chairman to formulate plans for the re 
searches to be carried out under supporl 
from the income from this fund and to 
recommend an institute or institutions 
where this might be done, for the fir>t 
five-year period of operation of the 


The committee outlined conditions 
which they felt should determine the 
methods of research under this fund and 
recommended acceptance of proposal - 
which had been submitted by the Uni- 
versity of Missouri, the University ol 
Wisconsin, and the Boyce Thompson 
Institute of Plant Research at Yottfcers, 
N. Y. 

To the University of Missouri, $ll>,(Miu 
is allotted annually for studies of the 
respiration rate and energy consumption 
of farm animals. To the University of 
Wisconsin, $8, (KM) i- supplied annually 

for studies of the biochemical r ea ctions 

involved in nitrogen fixation by bacteria 
At Boyce Thompson Institute, $20,000 
annually is made available for support 
of two separate projects of research, om 
dealing with chemical stimulation of the- 
processes of plant growth beignning with 
the breaking of the rest period, and the 
other with the bio. hemical bases of the 
insecticidal and fungicidal action of 
various chemicals. 

I have been requested by the trust 
company to serve as their adviser and 
visitor to the institutions where this work 
is in progress, to keep track of it as it 
develops, in order to Ite able to recom- 
mend whether support for it shall be 
continued for a second five-year period, 
or whether at the end of the first period, 
the funds shall be allotted elsewhere for 
other types or projects of research. 

Since this research is in a field in 
which I was very much interested before 
administrative work took me out of it, 
I am finding this contact extremely 
interesting and stimulating.

By the time you read this the question

Thai w.i>- ilic famous crea of 1876. The 
opportunities for a crew .ire much more 
favorable now than then, ami yet me 

still are basking in flu- sun of our former 
victory, a sun that has long since waned 
in those- fifty cicld> 

Naturally there are certain obstacles 

connected with establishing a rowing 

crew here. They are: 

1. The distance- from the river, (the 

only suitable rowing spot). 

2. Lack of equipment shell and oars, 
rowing machines, housing lor the shell, 


H. Lack of a e apabJe coach. 

4 I. a. k of man power. 

These obstacles can he overcome. The 

distance ol three- and one half miles from 
the iive-i was not SO appalling to the men 
ol '7c 1 he y trotted to and Irom llu- 

river. At present, with sue h a good per 

rentage of student ears on campus, this 
matter of transportation is not such a 

difficult problem. 

As for equipment a new shell costs 
over $12(K), lint a second hand shell can 
lie secured for well under $1(1(1. The 

necessary two second hand rowing Ma- 
chines can also he cheaply procured. The 

housing difficulty can he met at first as 
it was in the olden days store the shell 
in a toboOCO barn near the river. 

I he question of a coach is a vital one. 
There is no one in the pre-scnt coaching 
staff that is capable of coaching a crew. 
However, the author has interviewed Mr. 
Joyce, who has been prominent in rowing 
Circles for the past twenty-five years, 
lormer coach of the Springfield High 
crews, who is willing to coach and help 
put a crew on its feet, for only the cost 
of his transportation to and from Spring- 

And as for man power our College 
has a quantity of potential capable 

rowing material. Last spring over forty 
men definitely signed themselves up for 
Crew, should it be established here. 

The advantages of having a crew are 
innumerable. As a publicity agent there 
is no sport that is better. Races can be 
procured with the large universities. 
Win or lose, it would be fine publicity for 
the College to he- rowing in such compe- 
tition as with Harvard or Yale. Of course, 
we could not immediately open our pro- 
gram with a met with any of the larger 
colleges, but after one year of creditable 
showings made with the crews of the high 
schools and prep schools of the state, 
such a program would be easily feasible. 

As a sport, there is hardly any activity 
that builds men more than does new. 
It requires absolute- team-work. It is a 
grind, but the results are incredibly fine. 
It is practically assured that this insti- 
tution will change its name this college- 
year. What time would be better than 
now to establish a crew? Ft is not a 

fantastic dream, hut an actual, possible 
attainment. Why not.-' Tins article is

To the Editor of the- Collegian; 

The- last two publications of the 

Collegian have contained articles on the 
actions and behavioi <>t the- Stockbridge 
freshmen. While we do not think that 

the last article was e|iule- fairly wordeel, 
we will admit that on the whole the 
accusations in both cases were just. 

Therefore we- wish to inform the School 

as a whole and our clitics in particular 
that the Student Council of Stockbridge- 
is now functioning ami hit lire rowdyism 
on the part of our freshmen will be 

taken care of immediately. 

It would be. we- think, loo had to 

destroy what amity now e-xists; conse- 
quently We are willing at all times to 
do our part, small or large as it may he, 
In work for harmony on the campus. 
Anv constructive criticism on the- part of 
four year iiien will he more than appre- 
ciated. The Student Council ol Stock- 
bridge will take- tare of any sue h com 
municat ions. We are sorry tor what has 
already happened and will do our utmost 
to prevent any futir- misbehaviors. We 
feel sure that a little CO-Operatioa from 
four-year men will help us bring about 
this aim. I'ujust criticism or articles in 
the- Collegian however, will not help 
Fair criticisms on the part of the four 
year men mean fair play 00 our part. 
Why not act accordingly?

holts so that LeCaln, Ingall*, I anna, or 
Littleton could make plenty of lengthy 
_ .mis. Tufts was also on the alert to take

t j Kimball also aided the State collegians 

man) times. An aerial attack which wa- 
lla- most successful that has been launched 
by the State College this year accounted 

lor the only Maroon and White score. 

With Kimball throwing act urate passes, 

the Massachusetts men drove down to the 
Tufts three-yard line when Kneeland slid 
through for the only Massachusetts score 
in tin game. The try for the extra poinl 
hv drop-kick was unsuccessful. 

In last Saturdays game the Tufts line 
perionaed much better than in an\ 
previous game this season and presented 
en client interference for their ball carriers. 
Littleton, a tackle, playing his last varsity 
football game, also scored after a bad 
pasi from center caused Holmberg to

on the ball, gathered it up antl proceeded 
to run 29 yards for a touchdown with a

represented in the forty-three stutlents 
who attended this week-end gathering. 
It was a very informal antl personal group 
gathered about this internationally known 
antl experienced man and because of this 
close contact the personality, ex|>crience, 
and keen mint! of Dr. Matthews were of 
maximum value to the stutlents. The 
whole universe was discussed but in brief 
the subjects centered about: 

The Present World Situation: Com- 
munism. Nationalism, and Secularism as 
forces in various countries; 

How Christ met antl acted in the 
presence of strong Nationalism and Race 

prejudice in His own Life: 

These forces, their aims and evident 
results, in comparison with the actual 
accornpltshment antl following of Christ 


The possibilities and need of a new 
work! order, the possibility of another 
Great War, the League of Nations and 
other creative antl preservative agencies; 

What we as students in business, 
teaching, social service, in the United 
States and the World can do to help 
along the inevitable New W orld < >rd< i

Low priced objects ol beauty and utilitj 
constitute the moat recent and unusual 

exhibition set up by Professor Trank A 
Waugh in the Memorial Building. The 
articles, secured from the Art (enter in

pieces ol chinaware, twentv six pieces <>i 
glassware, nine pieces ol linen and twentv 
eight mix ellaneoue objet ts. 

Man) noteworthy and artistic designi 

are to be lountl on the chinaware. Six 
different patterns are represented anil are 
called the "Green Wheat," "< .ay Morn," 
"Rescue," "Astoria," "Tailing Leaf," and 
"llaviland, Trance" patterns. Particu- 
larly striking are the "( ireen Wheat" anil 
"The Tailing Leaf" designs. 

Several types of goblets, sherbet cups, 
COCktail tups and vases are included in 
the glassware. 'Those having the crystal

result of little practice which consisted 

mainly of running through signals and 

petty formations, did not function at a 

whole, antl, consequently, all gains were 
made through individual ait ion. The 

mainstayi for the freshmen were Black

while the sophs weie dependent upon 

"Hub" While and George Cain for gains.

T"t>ur ye<irs ago the V'nkhorne Society 
was formed by a small group of students 
who wished an outlet for their literary 
expression Other than the C a ffrfie a. 

Since its incep ti on the Yaanorne Society 

has published three small booklets of 
verse antl prose written entirely by stu- 
tlents. Each of these three volumes was 
favorably received by the College. 

The Ynklwrnr as an activity appeals 
to only a small part of the student body. 
Due to this fact the literature in last 
year's volume is the work of a limited 
number of writers. 'This year it is planned 

to enlarge the membership of the society 

and st) produce a greater variety of COS 

tent in its publications. 

Due to the number of meetings held by 
other activities the Society docs not wish 
to call for an immediate meeting of those 

interested in writing for the Vnkkorne, 

waiting rather until it is known 
there is a sulfn ient number of interested 

individuals to make it worthwhile. Other 

than interest in some phase of writing as 
poetry, prose, drama or criticism, there 
are no restrictions placed upon member 

ship in the society. Anyone interested 

should drop a signed contribution in the 

Collegian box in the Memorial Building 

or should hand his name to either L. II. 

Takahashi '.'51, or to Oscar Margolin '32.

On December I, President Thatcher trill go to Boston to take treatments and to 
start his leave <>i absence. There is no need t<> review Proxy's activities since be haa 
been at Massai shueetts. Well doea he deaerve a rent. May he, before he again eeaumea 
the adiniuisi rative duties, become completely cured and reim igorated. 

In your absence, Prexy, <l<> not lot-get us. although you are not actively with us. 
Massachusetts will welcome you on your return. 

The 1930 football season is completed. Record: one win, eight losses; 36 points 

for the team and 248 against. And although football is an extra-curricular activity, 

the outside world judges a college 1-y the kind of teams it produces. What is its 

judgment ol Massachusetts? 

Reasons for an unsuccessful season are difficult to ascribe. Schedule, material, 

morale. and coaching are perhaps the primary causes. A losing team may be the 
result ol defects in anv or all of these points, or there may be other influences, Let 

us consider the i'»^<' Massachusetts team from these four angles. 

of the teams played by Massachusetts tins year, four, namely Hates. Bowdoin, 
City College <>i New York. and Springfield, were this year undeniably "out of our 
d.iss." In the average, Hate, ami Bowdoin are opponents against whom we have 
■ chance. Bates and C.C.N.Y. do not appear <>n the schedule next year. We will Kcenc Normal and Wagner. The varsity playing Keene Normal! Are there 
no more colleges of «>ur dass in New England? Will the local prep schools be next.' 

Material is our next consideration. Always at the beginning of the season we are 

told of the quality Of our material. This polity is a good one, for at the beginning of 
the season, the team needs moral support. Always at the end of the season we hear 
''because "I the quality ot the veterans and the material from this year's freshman 
i lul), a good season is expel ted next tall." This season, we had good material. Weight, 

a factor lacking in the past fen years, was present this fall. The line weighed over 

17."i pounds per man; the kieklichl averaged IflO pounds. A Strong, powerful team, 
bent on winning. A team who knew foothill, ami who played their best, we believe. 

Why did the) fail? 

Let Us consider the morale of the team. The men played hard and did their best, 

but constant losses do not breed confidence. The Kick-off deserves praise, and it 

served it- purpose in raising enthusiasm and support, but it would not have been 
needed it there had been a different spirit. Hvcti const. mt losses, if legitimate, would 

not produce such a low morale. Sonv thing else was responsible. 

This something was the lack of confidence in the coaching staff, the fourth and 

Oh Yeah 

Every once in ■ while the news comes 

round to us that some wriOUS minded 

person wants to know wh\ we always 
indulge in destructive rather than con- 
structive criticism. This question always 

makes us wonder il wc have been taken 

seriously. 'H i ourae it's nice to think that 

WC are shaping the minds ol others but 

we do not believethat we have that effect. 
Most ot the students ourselt included) 
have nothing that can be truthfully 

(ailed a mind witness Dean's Hoard 
and those that do possess minds refuse 

to believe .ill that they read in the papers; 
so, after all, our influence is not so very 


To come back to destructive versus 
constructive criticism. We really believe 

that those who howl "destructive criti- 
« ism" are rather off the track. We trv to 

present things as we see them (realising 

that human beings are the funniest things 
in a very funny world | and if we see 
things with a bias blame the public 
schools where we received our elementary 
eilin ation. 

"Why do you criticize so much? The 
really intelligent students don't." Of 
course the) don't, they realize the utter 
futility of life; and, anyway, great minds 

can t ran scend the petty difficulties of life 

which bother us. 

The Collegian went aesthetic last week. 

Its calendar reported that the Amherst 
Theater would present a French movie 

(price forty cents) and that Madame 
Bianchi would s|H-uk on "The Real 
Emily Dickinson." A number of the 

Stale students did go to hear about 
Emily. We think that the lecture was 
somewhat disappointing (destructive 

criticism?) but several of the ladies 
present admired the shades of green in 

Madame's costume. 

It is Ware than difficult to net an excuse 
from our Assemblies; even if you have an 
excuse that was never presented before. 
Last week a red-headed senior tried to 
^et an excuse from Assembly on the 
ground that Ms little tiger kitten was 
lost and that he had to search for it. 

There actually was <• tiger kitten and it 

really was lost but Red should have 
known that an ingenious prevarication 
would have more chance in winning an 
excuse than the truth. 

I'.S. The kitten has since been found 

only a little the worse lor its experience. 

Uwl point in our consideration ol the 1930 football season. 

A snipe hunt was organised for the 

gullible on Thursdav night. In sni|K- 
hunting, as you probably know, a num- 
ber ol beaters go out into the brush and 
drive the snipe into the Open bag-< held

done at night for t lien the birds can be

for ii-( It. \\ hen the ~.inie system is used year alter year and it does not work, why 
not change it ? Whj not introduce a new coach, not the product of the M.A.C. svstem 

who will have new ideas, who will act independently, who will instill new spirit, and 

who will, perhaps, produce winning teams?

"I i i '- > o -.m.i tl ing about the \\ lie.'ls." 

"The Si nate is taking < are <>t i hat now." 

After a lew such answers, the response seemed funny, and yet when we stop to 
realise it, it shows better than anything else can, just how efficient the present Senate 
is. Mere, at last is a group ol nun who do their work without being told. 1 hey an-

And they have been doing that all year. Countless problems have arisen and have 
been solved without the college at large even being aware ol the need lor action. It 
would seem then that Massachusetts now lias a Senate which functions a- it should, 
which solve- student problem-, and which governs silently, visely and well. Let us 
honor it , and i » sped it . and co-operate with it w henever we (an.

At last I've seen a girl 
Who knows the vvav to walk 

Without the pensive pace of penguins 

Or the awkward amble of the auk. 

She does not shamble like the apes 
From whom it's said we come; 
Nor does she sway from side to side 
I. ike an animated pendulum. 

Neither does she gaily gallop 
Like a meditative cow; 
Nor docs she lightly leave the earth 
Like Percherons that pull the plow. 

Instead she walks the way she ought to, 

Like a dryad in a wood; 

Or if I mUSt be more explicit . 

As a human being should! 

N.B. This is all a damned lie. 
Oh Yeah! 


rj?e Scribe 

As everyone must know, the old Town 
Hall, alias the Community Theatre, is 

now a defunct amusement house. Since 

several students have been wondering 
about what was going to happen now 
that the Amherst Theatre is the onlv 
movie house in town, Ye Scribe thought 
it might be a good idea to get some first 
hand information about the whole affair. 
So he set out to interview Mr. Smith, 
the manager ol the Amherst Theatre. 
Mr. Smith was sitting at his office desk 

when Ye Scribe arrived for his appoint- 
ment. After making himself known, the 

reporter said: 

"May I ask you questions about your 

After a little hesitation, the manager 

"Sure! < k) ahead." 

"Well," began Ye Scribe, "ran you 

tell me what happened to the Com- 
munity Theatre?" 

"Certainly," was the reply. "The 
Paramount- l'ublix Corporation, of which 
this theatre is a part, has merged with 
the corporation that ran it and have 
purchased the production rights which 
supplied them with pictures." 
"What was the reason for this?" 
"Onlv that there is not n»om for two 

theatres in this town." 

Ye Scribe thought a moment, then 

"How about the good seats they had 
over there? Are you going to get better 
ones, too.''" 

"Yes. we ate, as soon as possible. 

We're planning to replace the old once 

with all plush seats which will not be so 

(lose together." 

"Are you planning any other innova- 
tions in addition to this?" continued Ye 


"Oh yes. Starting on December first, 
this theatre will begin the policy ot 
Changing the entire program every day. 

Aii entirely different newsreel will also 

be run because we now have newsiet Is 

from all the different companies." 

"An- you planning on presenting any 
more French mm lea?" 

Acs. We -ire going to try to net the 

French version of "The Big Fond," 

starring Maurice Chevalier and Claudette 
Colbert. The tentative date for this is 
I )( (ember fourth." 

As Ye Scribe was trying to think up 
other questions, Mr. Smith said: 

"Let me ask ><>u a question. How 
would you like to see our apparatus? ' 

"Great!" answered the Scribe. 

Then the manager showed the reporter 
how everything was run in the operator's 
room 'he operates the machines once in a 
while ami in the whole theatre, even to 

demonstrating how large the talkie horns 

were. Ye Scribe was very pleased. 
As the two parted, Mr. Smith said: 
"I'm glad yOU (.line to see me. We're 
always glad to get the viewpoint of our 
patrons on what % going on here.'' 


Required vs. Elective Courses 
Controversies rage between educator- 
a- it, whether the course of study which 
a -tudent pursues should be standardi/i xj 
and determined bv the institution which 
he attends or should be opportunities foi 
SO-Called "sell expression" and hem ( 

selected by each student to suit hit 

individual desires. 

Most colleges, like ours tor example, 
vvi-h to have their course of instruction 
and the degree which they grant upon 

its completion stand for sometbinf 

definite and distinctive for each college 
There are therefore certain "require- 
ments tor graduation" which every stu- 
dent must have. These vary with diltei 
ent colleges, from only a few required 
courses in English, science, etc.. in some 
cases, to a nearly fixed curriculum for the 

full four-years in others. 

At this College, our hope is that our 
COUne of study shall provide the "scien- 
tific foundation, cultural background and 
professional training" tor some specific 
vocation or profession Heme, its cur- 
riculum is necessarily more sharply de- 
fined than are those which represent onlv 

a broad cultural training. In recant yean 

however, a much greater variety of 
majors has been provided than was true 
in the earlier history of the College; 
ecause the needs for "professional 
training" are becoming increasingly more 
specialized. A constant effort is main- 
tained, however, to keep the opportunity 
to acquire a good "cultural background" 
as liberal as possible. 

When I initiated this series of "I'rexy 
Says" weekly notes for the Collegian, 1 
hoped to Continue them through this 
college year and through them to call 
attention to many things on the campus 
Which usually escape students' notice. 
My coming absence from the campus will 
make it impossible for me to continue 
this plan and this will be the la.-t ol these 
notes tor the present year at least. 

My very best wishes lor a successful 
year to you all.

In a close and bitterl) fought battle, 
the Stockbridge School of Agriculture- 
gridiron warriors eked out a 7-7 tie 
against the strong Keene Normal eleven 

at Keene, N. IL. last Saturday afternoon . 
both teams made their onlv scoie in the 
first period and Iron, then on till the end 
of the game, the Contest waged up and 
down the field, each team endeavoring 
to put over a winning touchdown. Keene 

threatened to break the tie iii the second 
and fourth periods but the strong de- 
fensive attack on the part of the Aggies 

prevented any such action. 

In an attempt to match brute strength 

and power against clever and wily foot- 
ball, the gridiron eleven of the Stockbridge 

School of Agriculture found itself on the 
short end of a 'J 7 J score established last 
Friday in a game at Deertield against 
the smart gridsters of Decrfichl Academy. 
The Stockbridgers began the game by- 
driving up the field into their enemy's 
territory at least four times during tin- 
first period, only to lose the ball on 
downs when Hearing the opponents goal. 
From the second period until the game 
ended, the Decrfichl Academy boys were 
on the offensive, executing accurate

in its survey of one of the Connecticut

Stated Paul Williams in an addre- 

before the Liberal (tub. November 2\ 

Mr. Williams then went on to describ 
other shocking factors and situation-. 

especially those affecting child labor. 

He also brought out how intense i- 

the unemployment situation by pointing 
out instances where men were working 
ten hours a day for but the pay ot 
dollar and a few sloppy meals. And eve 
at this rate, employers were unable t 
employ the crowds of job seekers lookin 
for work. 

Mr. Williams briefly touched on the 
situation of women workers in the 
labors in the tobacco barns.

subject is Anger. Tew of us know how 
to be angry and do a good job of it." 

Anger was compared to steam. Steam 
if not properly used is dangerous. It will 
explode and can cause a great deal of 
damage. If used properly, steam can be 
steadied down to do all infinite amount 
of good. Anger, if allowed to explode, 

can cause an unlimited amount ot da 

Struct km. While ■ if Anger is made 

"steady, self-contained, and serviceable," 

the amount of good accomplished is 
almost immeasurable. 

Work done toward the humanitarian 
handling of the insane bv the Seventh 
Earl of Sahftcsbury, was started bv a 
burst of anger properly controlled. Anger 
Caused Abraham Lincoln to make the 
abolishment of slavery his life work. We 
should try to make our anger cam its 
toward such goals. Reverend Clausen 
Uniquely finished his talk bv presenting 
the degree of MA. I Master of Anger on

Over forty M.AC, students, former 
4-H Club members, attended the "K.O." 
buffet supper and meeting held in Stock- 
bridgc Hall last Thursday evening. The 
program consisted mainly ol a fine talk 
by Mr. George L. Farley on his recent 
trip to St. Louis made by auto in com- 
pany with two other Massachusetts cars 
and about twelve other Massachusetts 
Club folks who attended the National 
Dairy Show. Their return through West 
Virginia was very interesting. The entire 
story was indicative of Mr. Farley's pep 
and enthusiasm for Club work, and 
especially Club folks, not only in Massa- 
chusetts but in other states as well. 

Other guests present were Mrs. George 
L. Farley. Miss Glad\s Sivert '28, now 
assistant county leader in Franklin 
County, also a loyal member of "K.O. ", 
Mr. Harold Eastman, county leader in 
Hampshire County and Mr. Karl Nodine. 
assistant state club leader. It was a jolly 
good party and there is every hope for 
duplicating it monthly during the college

Before a large gathering of students 
interested in French, Dean Geoffrey 
Atkinson of Amherst College presented a 
very pleasant and instructive talk to the 
French Club last Thursday night in 
French Hall. Despite his use of the 
French language throughout his speech, 
he was well understood by the majority 
of those present because of the exieptional 
clearness of his French pronunciation. 
The subject of his talk was his research 
work on French books on geography and 
travel during the years from 1480 to 1610. 
His presentation was aided materially by- 
lantern slides and photographs of a few 
of the three hundred book photographs 
which he has in his collection. 

That research work in the oldest 
libraries in Europe among the oldest 
printed books in the world can be very 
interesting and instructive was expressed 
by the Dean when he said: 

"For several years, on and off, I spent 
long days reading, cataloging and photo- 
graphing — and I never got tired of it." 

Dr. Atkinson's results have been of 
immense value to students of French and 
printing during the fifteenth and six- 
teenth centuries. His work containing 
the results of his research is a distinct 
and individual contribution to the field 
of literature. 



The Ctlltgian this week has tin- 
honor of printing, complete for the 

first time, the original poena "Ode bo 

Virgil" by Walter A. Dver, Amherst 
poet, who read this ode at the assem 
bly dedicated to the bimillenium of 

Ode to Virgil 

Walter A. Dyer 

(Composed for Bimillenium of Virgil 
and read by the Author at the celebration 
of this event at the Massachusetts Agri- 
cultural College, December 3, 1W0.) 

Of ancient things some live and sonic an- 
Dead as the cities of forgotten men 
Which sleep the ages through, nor wake- 
To tell us the life that once they led. 
Scanning their stones, men studious of the 
Of things antique strive earnestly to 

Dead facts about the dead who ne'er 
Doomed to be unrememlK-red evermore. 
Their loves, their hates, their pride, 

their dreams, their folly- 
Are shrouded in eternal melancholy. 


Stellar Tackle Elected to Football 
Captaincy While Mason and 
Waskiewicz Are Also Chosen 

Coincident with the announcement that 
Clifford R. Foskett '32 of Weymouth has 
been elected to captain the 1931 Mass.i 
chusetts varsity football eleven, by Dean 
William L. Machmer last Monday morn- 
ing, the election of Donald If. Mason *33 
of South Easton, and Edward J. Waskie- 
wicz "Y2 of Three Rivers as captains of 
the varsity cross -country and so<(er 
teams respectively, next year, was also 
made public. 

Cliff Foskett was the one outstanding 
lineman in this year's eleven who kept 
up what little spirit there was in the 1830 
team and for this reason he has been 
acting captain during many of the games. 
Clilf started his football career here at 
the Stale College as a member of the 
freshman eleven and won his numerals 
alter a season in the line. The following

ndicative of the interest and ability of 
the basketeers ol this college, then it is 
inevitable that Massachusetts will once 
more put a varsity basketball team on 
the floor capable of winning games 
modestly and losing gracefully. The 
recent interclass basketball games were 
marked in particular by good-natured 
rivalry and keen sportsmanship which is 
after all the criterion ol every sjxirt. 
Every class in both schools participated, 
the four-year sophomores and freshmen 
winning an equal number of games and 
together four of the five contests, the 
two-year freshmen winning the remaining 
game. The schedule of games played and

"In the pawing ol Mr. Emil Abramson, the town lost a respectable citizen, the 

college a faithful employee, and the student body a trusted ,md loyal Iriend." Thus 
in Chapel last 1 ■ i iil.tN morning, the Dean summarized our memories of "Shorty." 

That Mr. Abramson was a respei ted cit ixen is shown by his popularity and achieve 
ments in his work lot the Amherst Pod of the American Legion. As regards him 
a> i college employee. Treasurer Fred C. Kenney, a close friend of Mr. Abramson, 
sass that "his strong point was thai be was faithful and dependable, never failing 
in the conscientious discharge <>i his duties." Not only was he faithful, but he al- 
ways performed his duties good naturedly. It was for this point that the student 
body 1 iWed "Shorty." He was agreeable and chei rful, yet firm in the responsibilities 
ol his service at the "Mem" Building. "Shorty" Abramson was a true friend to all 

w ho knew him 


Although the idea ol an intercollegiate daily has been definitely censored bv the 

Amherst College administration, a brie! review oi the proposition seems in order. 
The plan was to establish a dailj intercollegiate paper to carry Massachusetts, 
Amherst, Smith, and Mi. Holyoke news .mil some world news. A salaried editor 
and advertising manager would direct the paper impartially and intelligently. A 
student stall on each campus would take care of editing and circulation. 

Amherst has taken definite action. President rhatcherof MAC does not approve 
the idea. Smith and Mt. Holyoke seem more interested, but official sanction has 
only been received from Smith. 

The main reason lor the intercollegiate dailj was mercenary. However, the busi- 
ness basis of the lour college paper seems decidedl) shaky. Would the circulation 
guarantee publication? We think not. 

Arguments against such an intercollegiate dail) are several, ll.ii • i> no need for 
such a publication, ["he common interests ol the four colleges are few. The existing 

college weeklies and bi weeklies are cntinlv adequate. Furthermore, such a pub- 
lication would have opportunities of promoting scandal and active opposition to 
the (acuity and to the college. Present college papers serve important functions on

Only mediocre minds are consistent 
they can't think ol anything better. 

When people refute our learned argu- 
ment- we sometimes feel like the young 
lady in Soi.u- •;>nl Sensibility: "Elinor 

agreed to it all. for she did not believe 
that he deserved the compliment of 
rational opposition." 

i>n Sunday night everyone will start 
preparing for finals, an act which will be 

the first introduction to our courses for 
many of us; but that's not what we want 

io talk about. Early in his freshman 
year ever) student is told, "You'll get 
just as much out of studying as ><>u put 
into it," whereupon certain believing 

souls begin to Stud) a- though life it-elf 

depended upon the number of hours 

spent over the book- only |o find that 
the good old maxim did not hold. 

The big trouble with the statement was 
that it was unsuccessfully competing 

with a more powe r ful principle the Low 
of Diminishing Returns. To illustrate: 

one hour'- study will enable you to get 

505 in a certain hour exam. If the fresh- 
man's precept wen- true, two hours -t in ly 

would bring him a hundred; but does 

that evei lupi en? Proportionate expendi- 
tures do not always bring proportionate 
returns. The thing. to do is to find where 
the time spent in studv produces the best 
giades. You may find that two hours 
work will give a result ol Ml, but that 
three hour- of studv will raise your mark 
only two percent. Then it's up to you 
to decide whether those two extra points 
are worth another hour's studv. We 
decided in the negative a long time ago. 

Do you know an) student who did not 

a-k you, last week. "Tell me some gut- 
that 1 can take for agriculture credits?" 
We think that a small booklet should be 
prepared that would set forth the merits 

of ever) course on campus, whether its 
one of the courses that nobod) ever fails, 
if it's interesting, worthhwile, it the 
'prof knows hi- stuff,' etc. Of course 
these pamphlets should be kept awa) 
from professorial perusal.

H?e Scribe 

"Yes, sir, the outstanding thing that 
presented ii-> If to my mind on m) last 
trip to Washington was the extremel) 
favorable position which this College 

holds as an educational institution in 
this country," said Dean William L. 

Mai Inner to Ye Scribe in an interview 

this week concerning the Dean- \i-it to 

Washington ,i- a representative of the 

College to the forty-fourth annual meet- 
ing of the Land < .rant ( 'ollege Association 

of the United States. "That this College 
compares with any and all of the land 
grant colleges throughout the nation, and 
that its high position is of firm and List- 
ing importance leave- no doubt at all in 

my mind that Massachusetts ought to 

be proud of its State College," he went 
on to say. 

Dean Mai Inner was one of the group 
of official delegates from this College 
which was headed by President Thatcher. 
The convention, the largest one in the 
history of the Association, was a very 

successful one according to the Dean. 
There were extensive opportunities for 

all the delegate- to find out just what 
was going oti in this country at the 
federally supported institutions. 

"A very important part of the program 
WU the reading of the report and recom- 
mendations of the Committee of Fifty- 
one, the committee in charge of the Land 
(■rant College Survey," continued the 
Dean. "Regarding this report, the most 
important part was the recommendation 
by the committee that the federal govern- 
ment provide the support <>t two dollars 
,\ni\ a hall for each child of school age in 

the country, the sum in each state to be 

-pent by that state in any way it would 
•ee lit in its educational program. This 
i- a distinct departure from the present 
System where the national government 

determines how the money shall be spent." 
"Was there anything discussed at the 

meeting which would be of especial 
interest to our undergraduate-?" Ye 
Scribe questioned. 
"Well, the Resident Teaching Group 

(the convention was divided into five 

groups in it- disi ussion of undergraduate 
methods placed gnat emphasis on the 

coordination of the bash science and 

liberal courses with the courses in prac- 
tical fields." 

In concluding the interview, the Dean 
remarked that Secretary of Agriculture 
Hyde's reception and dinner was one of 
the functions he had attended, both for 

the good and varied food and the splendid 

Opportunity given for contact with some 

of the leading educationalists in the 

United States.

Splendid Entertainment Given 
Boston Organization 


Versatility of presentation and attrac- 
tiveness of tone quality characterised the 
lierformance of the Varsity Club of 
I lost on last Friday evening in the final 
Social Union entertainment of the fall 
term. Consisting principally of familiar 
selections, including both current popular 
songs and the more beloved works of 
several master composers, the program 
was thoroughly enjoyed by a large 

Five divisions of the entertainment 
were devoted to the quartette, composed 
of Norman Arnold, tenor; Clifton John- 
son, tenor; Ralph Tailby, baritone, and 
Robert Iscnsee, bass. The remaining four 
divisions consisted of tenor solos by Mr. 
Arnold, organ solos by Earl Widener, 
who is the pianist and arranger of the 
Club, baritone solos by Mr. Tailby, and 
selections by the Club trio, consisting of 
Messrs. Arnold, Johnson, and lsensee. 

Almost every selection rendered pre- 
sented some epedal feature of capability 
of the Club. Perhaps in no other two 
instances was Mr. Widener's skill as an 
arcompanist better exhibited than in 
"My Menagerie" and in "Nora." Both 
"The Two Grenadiers" and "Mammy's 
Lullaby" revealed the fine interpretation 
which Mr. lsensee was capable of giving 
to his bass solos. Originality of presen- 
tation, although predominant in every 
selection, was strikingly displayed in 
"Roamin* On" and in "Here Comes the 
Sun." In short, the wealth of real liar- 

mony with which the cone hiding selec- 

tion, "The Belli "f St. Mary," 

was pre- 

seuted was clearly indicative 

of the 

superior qualification* of these artists.

In conclusion he stated that, "This young

That it is neither prudent to be wholly 
a slave to the past nor entirely rebellious 
to its teaching was the gist of the sermon 
delivered by Prolessor Reinhold Neibuhr 
of the Union Theological Seminary at the 
Sunday Chapel, December 7. 

"Anyone who isn't critical of his father 
is often less virtuous than his father, for 
he is living in a new age." stated Professor 
Neibuhr. Continuing with a description 
of the evils of the past Professor Neibuhr 
commented upon the individualism of the 
eighteenth and nineteenth century. He 
pointed out that this individualism was

"A binder and better winter carnival 

for Massachusetts this winter" is the 

slogan of "Hob" l.abarge who is in charge 

of all winter sports this year. •'Hob" has 

many Rood ideas for making the carnival 

a bigger success than ever, and is trying 

to get all possible competitors for the 

various sports organized and practiced 

before the events are run off, instead of 

relying on the few men who really enjoy 

snow sports enough to take time out to 

help make the carnival successful. As a 

step towards attaining this desire, he 

has organized a Winter Sports Club in 

which Ryan 'Ml is president and t'lark '34 

is secretary. 

As usual, the program will include 
competitive skiing, snow-shoeing, and 
tobogganing in addition to the ice races 
and figure sk.iting. The ski jumping 
should prove more difficult this year in 
view of the fact that an eight-foot jump 
will be plcacd at the bottom ot the slide. 
The ice events will take place before and 
during the'rosh hockey game which 
figure- in the aft« rnoon program. It is 

expected thai the carnival will be cloned 

by a long rfetgh ride through the berk 
shire Hills. So take a tip men, and wax 
up your skis and sharpen up your skate- 
in anticipation ol the best winter Carnival 
ever held at Massachusetts

New Seminar on Religions 
To Be Held This Weekend 

United Religious Council Sponsors 

Discussion for Catholics, Jews, and 

Protestants -Several Noted 

Men to Speak 

Do you know in what way and how 
the religious faith of "Al" Smith affected 
his chances of gaining the presidency? 
In what ways can childhood influence 
affect one's attitude toward religion? Is 
isolation of religious groups a guarantee 
of security? These and several other 
social questions will provide topics for 
-pcakers and questions for discussion 
groups when the Seminar on the com- 
munity relations of Protestants, Catholics, 
and Jews is held this week-end, January 
16, 17, and 18. Many noted speakers 
.ire included in the program. This is the 
first time in the history of the College 
that such a group of outstanding lecturers 
have appeared on campus. The leading 
purpose of the conference is to effect a 
tolerant outlook and to see the common 
ground on which all faiths rest. Every- 
one should be interested enough in the 
problem to attend this seminar. 

The program follows: 

January 16, 17, 18 
Opening Session: Friday Evening, 7:30

Roister Doisters Working Hard to 

Produce Play About Americans 

in England 

At a meeting of the Council of the 
New England Model League Assembly 
held at Harvard last week-end, the State 
College obtained the right to appoint 
chairmen for the Assembly delegations 
of two important European countries, 
Germany and Norway. Dr. Erich Hoff- 
man, graduate student here, will be 
chairman of the very important German 
delegation, while Souren Tashjian '31 
will most likely take over the reins as 
chairman of the Norwegian delegation. 
Both delegations, of course, will have 
student representatives from several other 
colleges which are in the Model League. 
No delegation will be restricted as to the 
number of representatives. 

Some of the other business of the meet- 
ing concerned the discussion of com- 
missions which are now working in 
preparation for the Assembly. These 
commissions are conq>osed of students of 
the various colleges in the League and 
are headed by chairmen who are especially 
well-fitted to take over such work. There 
are six commissions now at work, two of 
which will present reports to the General 
Assembly. The names of these com- 
missions are: the Economic, the Opium, 
the Mandates, the Minorities, the United 
States of Europe, and the Intellectual 
Co-operation Commissions. 

Prospective speakers were also dis- 
cussed. The British Ambassador and 
Dr. Charles K. Webster of the University 
of Wales, both men very interested in 
international peace, are being invited to 
address the Assembly. 

John R. Guenard '31 was the Bay- 
State representative at the Council meet- 
ing, which proved to be very successful. 
Smith College will be the scene of the 
Council's next gathering in preparation 
for the fourth Assembly meeting which 
will be held at Wellesley, March 7. 


Annual Carnival with Many Events 

Scheduled to Take Place 

This Week-end 

Dramatic activities of the College for 
the winter term are to materialize in 
public January 24 and 25 at Leeds and 
at Deerfield respectively with the Roister 
Doister production ot "The Americans 
Come." a three-act comedy by Professor 
Frank Prentice Rand of M.A.C. The 
Roister Doister Dramatic Association is 
the chief dramatic body on the campus, 
and possess a history marked by steady 
achievement and dating back as far as 

"The Americans Come" is something 
unique in the way of collegiate enter- 
tainment. In a gay fashion it offers the 
audience a rare peep at two groups of 
sojourning Americans, one the Pierpont 
family of Detroit, and the other a Cox 
-Indent tourist party. Much of the fun 
arises from the American's mode of 
mpting to adapt themselves to the

This week-end, providing the snow and 
ice decide to favor the Winter Sports 
Club with their presence, the State 
College's Annual Winter Carnival will be 
held with numerous and sundry oppor- 
tunities for everyone to have a part. 

Saturday morning at 9:30, some of the 
snow events are scheduled to take place: 
ski jumping, ski-joring, a two and one- 
half mile cross-country ski race, ami 
plenty of tobogganing. This last is in- 
sured with the arrival of three, large. 
new toboggans at the Physical Education 
Department last Monday. 

In the afternoon, "Norm" Myrick '31, 
varsity goalie on the hockey sextet, will 
present an exhibition of figure skating 
just before the varsity hockey game with 
Northeastern University, at 2:30. Im- 
mediately after the game, the speed- 
skating 220 and 440 yard races will be 
held, followed by stunt skating.

Several New Colleges on Debating 
Team's Strong Schedule 


Local Theatre Presents French Pic- 
ture Starring Claudette Colbert 
and Adolph Menjou 

Due to the popularity of the first, and 
at tlie request of many students of the 
surrounding valley colleges, Amherst, 
Smith, Mount Hoiyoke, and Massachu- 
setts, the Amherst Theatre has obtained 
another French talking picture which 
will be shown at 4:15 p. m. on Friday, 
January 16. The show which features 
Claudette Colbert and Adolph Menjou 
'ailed "L'Enigmatique M. Parkes." 
1 hose who witnessed the first showing 
reach pictures will again want to see 
popular actress, Claudette Colbert, 
ind the well-known Adolph. Admission 
1 >H he at the usual price of forty cents. 

Travel, diversified sectional rivals, and 
a radio broadcast will feature the lengthy 
and extensive schedule which the De- 
bating Club has undertaken this season. 
During the earlier part of the season the 
team travels up to Maine and during the 
spring recess turns southward. Also, the 
dub meets a new rival from the far west. 
Webber College of Ogden, Utah. The 
Webber debate is the only home debate 
and, due to its unusualness. should revive 
a debating interest which has been waning 
for the paat few years. Too, Massachu- 
setts has the honor of being the first to 
act as host to the Webber College de- 
baters on their trip this way. The debate 
at Lehigh will be the first time that 
Massachusetts has invaded Pennsylvania. 
This latter meet possesses an added in- 
terest in the fact that station WCBA of 
Allentown is to broadcast the meet. 
(lark and C.C.N.Y. are the only teams 
of last year which have dates on this 
year's schedule. The Springfield debate 
is the only one with three men; the others 
are with two. 

The questions under debate will be: 
"Resolved that the nations of the world 
should adopt the policy of free trade"; 
and "Resolved that the several states 
should adopt legislation for unemploy- 
ment insurance." 

The material this year has been un- 
usually- good. Many candidates possessed 
high school experience and others have 
seen freshmen team and intramural 
.ot ion. These latter veterans include 
Richard Folger '32, Robert Howes "J.l,

Bay State Teams Conquer 
In Successful Sport Week 



Connecticut Aggies Easy Prey for 
Fast Working Varsity 

A week ago today, the Massachusetts 
varsity hockey team opened its winter 
schedule by trimming the Connecticut 
Aggie sextet on the College pood by the 
most satisfying and encouraging score of 
9-0. No doubt this victory will bring 
back in part at least to the student body- 
that feeling which makes the students 
support the athletic activities of Bay 

At the very start of the game, the 
Massachusetts pucksters raced up the in- 
to the opposing goal where Manty 
slammed the rubber home for the first 
tally. The only other score made in the 
first period was when Hammond, playing 
at right defense, took a neat pass from 
Tikofski, center in the second forward 
line, and BhaaOfed to shoot the puck paat 
the Nutmeggers goal tender. The second 
|K-ri(Ml opened finding the Bay Staters in 
the same scoring mood, and as a result 
Forest, Frost, and Tikofski, all unassisted, 
slapped the disc through the Connecticut 
Aggie goal to make the score at the end 
of the second period 5-0. The third 
period also gave Tikofski ami Forest a 
chance to show their mettle and so that 
no one would be disappointed scored two 
more goals apiece, thus completing the 
number of tallies. 

The entire game was marked by un- 
excelled passing and excellent shooting. 
I'erhaps mention should be made of the 
really fine exhibition on the part of 
Brown, the Nutmeggers' goalie, who 
turned back many shots which might 
well have resulted in scores against a less 

adept ml tender. The summary:

Davis Leads Scorers in Brilliant First 
Half of First Came of Season 

Showing a shifty offense coupled with 
some clever shooting, the Massachusetts 
varsity basketball quintet <>|h-iiciI its 
1113 1 season last Wednesday evening in 
the Drill Hall with an easy win over the 
Fitchburg Normal five, 38 to 5. 

Merrill Davis, Maroon and White 
center who led the scorers with IS points, 
tallied the first basket which was im- 
mediately followed by a double-decker 
by Torno, Fitchburg guard. This basket 
by Torno proved to be the only tally 
from the floor which the Fitchburg bas- 
ketballers were able to secure during the 
g.une. Soon after these initial baskets, 
Captain Stanisiewski, Davis, Kneeland, 
and Foley went on a scoring streak in 
true "Stars in Stri|>cs" style, rolling up a 
31 point total for the State College quintet 
at the end of the half. A successful foul 
shot by Ward raised the Normal School- 
ers' total tt> three points. 

During the second half, the Fitchburg 
men tightened up with the result that 
the State College baskctcers were able 
to score but seven points, while two more 
successful foul shots boosted the Normal 
School total to five points The Bay 
State team functioned quite well to- 
gether and presented quite a spirited 
passing game, which, in addition to a 
clever eye for the basket, should make

that the do ctrin e of Christianity is not

A- we return from tlie Christinas holidays and pick up the threads of college ac- 
tivities, we note with enthusiasm that during our absence projects have progressed 

with leaps and hounds. This is particularly true with reference to the most import- 
ant of all the projects, the changing of the name of the College. 

The move has attracted state wide publicit) and has raised considerable comment 

and thought among widely separated group*. It has been the topic of discussion in 

innumerable "readers columns." and despite the complete lack of information ex- 
hibited by some of the contributors, has, in the main, been favorably received. 

The bill has been drawn up by Mr. James F. Hacoll and reads so that it DBBSed 

the change will lake effect immediately. Last Thursday, January 8, Representative 
Louis A. Webster '14, Blackstone, with Representative Harry D. Brown '14 as co- 
petitioner tiled the bill in the State House. It must now follow the natural course 
of legislation, but, in the opinion of those in (lose contact with the project, should 

be PASSED bj the end of FEBRUARY. 

( it vital importance to the pro g ress of the bill is the action taken by the Massachu- 
setts Farm Bureau Federation in a meeting held in Worcester. January 7. It was 

expected that the greatest opposition to the bill would come from the farmers of the 

State, but this body, alter long < on-idcration, went on record as favoring the recom- 
mendation oi President Thatcher and the action of the board of Trustees, and they 
instructed their repr esen tatives to \<>ie in favor of the bill when it came up. Tins 
approval will probably be of immense importance in the reception of the bill in the 

It ther e for e seems to be not too optimistic to plan on ha\ ing a MASSACHUSETTS 


"To all men and women of w*h\ will, everywhere, who hold the faith that, in the 

end, the more satisfying road to an intelligently ordered world lies through knowledge 
rather than obscurantism, through consent rather than compulsion, through humane 

tolerance rather than through brutal partisanship." Thus is dedicated the seminar 
on the community relations ot I'rotcstants, Catholics, and Jews to be held on campus 
this week end. This conference should mean much to us as college Student*, soon to 
H<» into professions, science, or business, where religious prejudice is common. 

On this «am|. us there is practic.dU no religious prejudice. As we start on this 
foundation the seminar should be able tO show US that this is the proper attitude to 
take throughout life. 

It is a significant event to have a religious conference to destroy prejudice when 

We are in college and able to reason < dearly. Combined discussion will bring out our 
mutual problems. It we can learn to see truth in the beliefs of others, to realize that 
the worth of a man is independent of his religion, and to carry this attitude of toler- 
ance throughout life, the seminar will have accomplished its purpose. 

Oh Yeah 

"1 \c L,ot a good idea for your column!" 
"Oh yeah?" 
"Why not write alio. it those mutts

We think that the gentleman who sees

in the choir thought we would refuse but 
it's just as much fun to flay our lattlts as 

anyone else's. 

The students of this College are turn- 
ing, in ever increasing numbers, to a 
means of self-defense which is stigmatized 
by the Administration as being rude, 
barbarous, impudent, rustic, vulgar and 
impolite. We refer, of course, to the 
habit of bringing books to Sunday 
Chapels, and of reading during the 

Every uninteresting speaker carries 
away the impression that our student 
body deliberately ignores all speakers as 
one means of protesting against com- 
pulsory chapel*. In a sense he is right 

compulsory chape] is not dear to the 
students but the intelligent and inter- 
esting speaker does not hear a continuous 

rustle as the busy students turn the 
leaves Of their books. We do not believe 
that any ^ood sp ea k e r ever thought that 
we expressed our opinion of compulsory 
Chapel by refusing to listen to him 

books are brought to be used only when 

the speaker is a failure. (We distinctly 

remember one Sunday last term when we 
did not even open the new and interesting 
book we had just bought; be caus e the 

sermon was interesting.) 

We willingly admit that reading books 
during Sunday Chapels is rude to the 

speaker but even in the face of having 

our actions misconstrued las they have 
been, many time*) we shall continue to 
read in Chapel so long as speakers do 
these things: quote Kddie Guest; tell 

funny stories, utter the usual platitudes 

and bromides, or expound self-evident 
truths as revelations; so long as they do 
these things, so long will we read books 
in Sunday Chapels. (May we never sink

one day of our vacation reading Tku 
Belietint World by Lewis Browne. (Trust 

us to pick a book whose title sounds 

sarcastic.) The hook is a simple ex- 
planation of the world's major religions 
but we wire most interested in Mr. 

Browne's definition of religion because it 

is more cynical than ours. We maintain 

that religion is man's attempt to realise 
an ideal intelligent decency. Browne 

s.!\s. "By the word religion, we mean 
one specialized technique by which man 
seeks to realize the illusion that, though 
he may seem a mere worm on the earth, 
he nevertheless Can make himself the 
lord of the universe." We like both 
definitions; but don't accept either of 
them or you will fail to see the immense 

benefits sen ing from compulsory Sundaj

subtle (?) propaganda against Chapels; 
we realf) don*t give a damn one way or

H)e Scribe 



New War's resolutions arc trite expressions of good intentions. Usually we resolve 
not to do something. We feci that the Massachusetts undergraduate body should 
resolve to do something: namely, to co-operate with the administration, with the 
faculty, and among themselves. Although we have had no serious breaks in our 
campus life, there have been undercurrents of criticism and indifference in our atti- 

In the present year we hope to see main change* in the College. Most important 
is Massachusetts State College. The alumni and trustees are working to get the 
approval of the General Court on this all-important change. Another great develop- 
ment of the College is the continuation of the tive-xear building program. The 
Physical Education Building is fast nearing completion, and represents another ideal 
of main years which is nearly fulfilled. The next step in the program will be the 
remodelling of the Library, which will be done this year. However, while these 
achievements are practically certain. CO-Operation is necessary to assure us of them. 

With our representatives, athletic teams and academic activities, we must also 

co-operate. The basketball and hockey teams have started their seasons auspiciously, 
ami we wish them all success. Hut lor them to do their best, they must feel student 


Everyone c onne c t ed with the College is working, in his opinion, for its best inter- 
ests. Co operation will bring together these interests and real results will be accom- 
plished. The active work of most of us has been very slight: let us, in 1981, come 

out of our lethargy. Let us work together to make Massachusetts an institution for 
which we ma) have justifiable pride. 


The recent act ion of the (lass 1933 in presenting a watch chain and (harm to 

Robert II. Lorrey '31 in appreciation of Iti- voluntary coaching of two winning six 
man rope pull team- is worth) ot the highest praise. Mr. I.orrcv certainly deserved 
the recognition and can be proud of his aw an I because it is seldom that even a college 
community remembers the work of individuals. The action of the sophomore c la-s 
is to be highly commended .is giving just reward, and as giving encouragement to 

many hard working, unseen men w ho labor to make college life run smoothly. 

The students of M.S.C. combat the 
present economk depression think of all 
the money we put into circulation, via 
the Treasurer's office. 

The Dean is optimistic at the begin 
ning of the term Those who failed, and 

Beautiful, intellectual, sophisticated, 

and exceedingly (harming was she. 
but, oh, so bl>tf. so very blase! A radiant 
personality embellished by a cultured 
mind signified the highly educated Ameri- 
can girl of today; yet, bow blase I Such, 
indeed, was Ye Scribe's impression of a 
"typical" Kadcliffe senior. Miss Virginia 

Meekison, a one-time editor of the 

Raddiffe Doily. 

Miss Meekison is a very considerate 
sort of a person. Without the least bit 
of hesitation, she gladly answered all the 
questions which the inquisitive Scribe 
put to her. And how the questions came! 
True to form, she always replied in her 
kadcliffe manner. Some of her responses 
were very interesting, indeed. 

Characterising Harvard undergradu- 
ates as "nice, little boys," Miss Meekison 
went on to say: 

"In spite of all their faults, apparent 
and otherwise, Harvard men are pre- 
ferred by most Raddiffe girls be c aus e 
they are more like us than other college 
men seem to be. They have that same 
way of looking at things that we have. 
That is the reason, I think, that we prefer 
Smith to other women's colleges." 

"Do vou mean to infer by your re- 
marks that Raddiffe girls are different?" 
eagerly asked Ye Si ribe. 

"Ye*, I do. They're not before they 
come here, but after a while they become 
like the rest; they just "grow up into it," 
that's all. You sec, we have no fads or 
any of that sort of thing. Our social 
functions are, on the whole, not very 
important; the city is so near, you know, 
and one may have much better times 
there than at college dances or parties. 
We have not the athletic rivalry and class 
spirit that vou see up at Mount Holyoke. 
You COUld never get a crowd out to 
watch an intenlass athletic contest. It 
simply isn't being done." 

At this point. Ye Scribe turned the 

conversation a bit by asking: 

"You won't tell me now that Radclitte 
gills are so different that they don't Hunk 
out, will you?" 

"On the contrary, they Sunk out a 
large number in their freshman year but 
alter that very few flunk till 'C.enc rals* 
are given in the student's senior year." 

Hire Miss Meekison explained that 
"General*" had nothing to do with the 
army but that they were exams given to 
every student in May of her senior vear 

to determine whether she was sufficiently 

prepared in her studies to receive her 
degree. This is a trying time for every 
Senkn*, according to Miss Meekison, be- 
cause questions are asked which cover the 

entire course the student takes in addition 
to having questions on things not taken 

up in regular course*. It is in studying 

for the latter that a tutorial system, 
which is comparable to the Harvard 
system, is used. 

"What do you think is the most out- 
standing characteristic of kadcliffe girls?" 
continued Ye Scribe. 

"I should say that their almost univer- 
sal idea of a caret r and the scholarship 
attained by most of the girls who are 
planning such careers is the most out- 
standing quality of the Raddiffe woman." 

As Miss Meekison concluded, she calmly

are to carry on a drive for Red Cross

against dire famine, against poverty, 
social adjustment, and disease. It is in 
the interest of these students that the

among those students who are far less

Colby last Friday afternoon at Water 
ville, 3 to 2, but evening things up with 
a 5 to - win over the Hates pu ksters. on 
Saturday afternoon at Lewiston. 

Up to the last part of the last |>criod 
both teams played nip and tuck hockey 
in the Colby contest and the score was 
tied at 2 all. However just before the 
final whistle blew, Lovett, Colby center, 
received a clever pass from Pollard, 
defense man for the Mules who in turn 
managed to slip the puck past goalie 
Myrick for the winning tally. Captain 
ICd Frost led a Massachusetts 
offense, while Myrick made a number of 
clever saves in the cage for the State 

George Cain. Manna and White 

center, presented a good bit of brilliant 
hockey in the Hates game when he 
scored four of the five goals making up 
the Hay Staters total. Three of these 
goals he tallied unassisted. Hates opened 
the scoring but were held to two points 
while the State Collegians went on their 
rampage. The defense work of Hammond, 
sophomore, playing in his third varsity 
game, was a great aid in keeping the 
Mainstf rs' coring within bounds. He 

even took the offensive in the Colby 

game. s< oring one of the Massachusetts

Saturday evening, at 7:30, "Bob" 
Labarge, who captured third place at the 
Dartmouth Carnival last winter, and 
Miss Lillian Lacroix of Holyoke will give 
an exhibition of fancy skating. Following 
this exhibition, there will be dancing on 
the ice with or without skates to music 
furnished via radio. 

Sunday morning at 10 o'clock, a 
sleighing party will leave the campus for 
Pine Island Lake, about six miles from 
Lee, after first examining the snow models 
constructed at the various fraternities. 
At the lake, the party will scrape the 
snow from the ice and skate, or there will 
be skiing for those who bring skiis with 
them, and a hiking party will be arranged. 
Coffee will be served but lunch must be 
brought by each participant.

nished the music and an odd sight it was 
to see tight bustled, long flowing gowns 
intermingling with the "tough" flapperish 
garbs and all participating in the same 
fox trots and waltzes becoming to any 
student affair in this year of 1931. 

Many women members of the faculty 
were present in costume and as chaperons 
for the occasion. Miss Skinner and Miss 
Hamlin posed as very dignified ladies of 
the Cay Nineties, Miss Knowlton was a 
model vitamine-mineral-milk-and health 
fed baby under the guardianship of her 
nursemaid, Mrs. Maud Marshall, in 
foreign attire. Mrs. Hicks also appeared 
in pleasing costume. 

Prizes were awarded as follows: 

Funniest costume, Virginia Reed; 
ugliest, Muriel Hrackett; prettiest, Sarah 
Lu S'32; prettiest old fashioned, Helen 
Hale; most original, Mary Marshall. 
Honorable mention was given to the 
costumes of Ruth Scott, Certrude Meade, 
Mildred Twiss, Gertrude Barnes, Muriel

Seminar on Religions Addressed by 
Important Religious Men 

"Community Relations of Protestants, 
Catholics and Jews" was the subject 
nutter of the Seminar held at Memorial 
ll.tU from January lti-18. Several well 
known men, representing the three faiths, 
ve rc present to take part in the dis- 
, unions and lectures pertaining to them. 

The opening session, which took place 
,,n Friday evening at 7:30, was conducted 
by Dr. Albert Parker Fitch of the Park 
Avenue Presbyterian Church in New 
York. During his address Dr. Fitch 
made the astounding statement that he 
w ,is concerned only in resolving the 
interests of those truly devout to their 
religion. This attitude was hotly con- 
tented since it leaves out of consideration 
the majority of college students in this 
country, according to Dr. Louis Newman, 
Rabbi of Temple Rodeph Sholom, New 
York, and Mr. J. Paul Williams, Director 
of Religious Activities, at this College. 
Dr. Newman in contrast to Dr. Fitch, 
said that the college student was inter- 
ested in reconstructing religion, and that 
college men are just as religious as any 
nun ever was. Mr. Williams Mid that 
on this campus the general air was one

Samuels, 1925 Basketball Captain, 

Gives Award for Outstanding Foul 

Basket Shooting 

Members of the Massachusetts basket- 
ball team will have an added incentive 
when they toe the free throw line during 
the present and coming seasons. This is 
due to the fact that they will be compet- 
ing for the honor of having their nanus 
inscribed on the Samuel B. Samuels 
Trophy to be awarded annually to the 
player with the best average in foul 

This trophy, a large cup surmounted 
by a basketball figure, which has been 
given by Samuel B. Samuels of the Class 
of 192"), has arrived on campus and will 
be given a place of honor in the trophy 
room of the new Physical Education 
Building which is now nearing comple- 


Because of an unusually attractive 
address and his liberal attitude, Dr. 
Louis Newman won general student 
approval at the Seminar on Religion

Rev. Samuel M. Lindsay Emphasizes 

Need of Learning How to Live 

With One Another 

"The Art of Living Peacefully, Happily,

theme of the address given in Chapel last 
Sunday morning by Rev. Samuel Mac- 
aulay Lindsay of the Baptist Church in 
Brookline, Massachusetts. Rev. Lind- 
(Contlnued on Pafte i) 


Samuels was captain and right forward 
on the 1925 cpjintet, one of the most 
outstanding clubs in basketball history 
at the State College. This outfit won 11 
out of 14 games, including in its conquests 
Dartmouth, Williams, Wesleyan, New 
Hampshire, Springfield, Connecticut 
Aggie, and its objective rival. Tufts, ami 
was claimant of the mythical New 
Fngland college championship. Compiling 
a total of 4.VA points, it was also the 
highest scoring team in this sport at the 
State College, and Samuels, John Temple, 
and Merrill I'artenhcimcr as a trio tallied 
more than 100 points each of this total. 

Trying his hand at coaching since 
graduation Samuels has had conspicuous 
success at the National Farm School at 
Farm School, Pennsylvania, where he 
holds the positions of athletic director 
and coach. He has introduced a system 
of basketball new to this section of 
Kastern Pennsylvania and several times 
his teams have reached the top among 
their preparatory school rivals.

"Stars in Stripes" Remain in Ranks 
of Undefeated Hoop Teams 

With wins over Clark and Northeastern, 
the Massachusetts varsity basketball 
qtlintCt continued to rank with the un- 
defeated (|iiintcts at the same time sub- 
duing one of the strong teams in New 
Fngland, Northeastern University, which 
had the same team on the floor this yeai 
as they had last year. Last year, the 
"Stars in Strifes" managed to down the 
Husky quintet by a single point. 

In the contest with Clark 1'niversity 
last Wednesday night at Worcester, t In- 
state Collegians did not have any trouble 
to win 36 to LA, Although the game was 
slow, the Maroon and White, led by 
Captain Stanisiewski, rolled up 26 points 
in spite of a fairly clever defense which 
the Clark team presented. The Clark 
defense was not an exceptional defense at 
all, but succeeded in tampering the State 
College men considerably. "Stan" Stan- 
isiewski netted II points to materially 
aid his total toward the record which he 
established last year and hopes to break 
this year. Bowes, Clark (enter, led the

sented in this game. Northeastern 
offered a brilliant exhibition of flashy 
passing and made a shot whenever a 

chant t- appeared, wholly dependent upon 

their ability to outscore their opponents. 
Massachusetts played much more craftily. 
With much less show ami brilliance, they 
brought the ball down the floor rather 
slowly but surely, passed the hall about 
until a man was free, then shot, and 
usually managed to account for two more 
points. Undoubtedly the careful tactic 
of the State men won that game for them.

Shakespearean Morals 

Subject of Lecture 

Professor Patterson Delivers latter* 
eetlnf Talk at Reftular Tuesday 

Night Catherine; 

On January \2 Professor ( . II. I'.itter 
son, of the depart mint of languages 

and literature, c ondu cted the eecond of 

a series of let tines, given by various 
faculty members of that department 

during the winter term on every Tuesda) 

evening. Morality ami its relationship 
to Shakespeare's work was the general 
theme of I'rofcssor Patterson's talk. 

Fireti it is to be recognieed that Shakes 
pearc concerned himself but little with 

portrayal of manners and customs. 
( harat ter st inly and its truthful repTC ion were the great aims and achieve 
tnents of Shakespeare. No Marlowe, 
Johnson, Beaumont, or Fletcher drew 

character! so truthfully and v) power- 
fully that they lived beyond e perform* 

ante. Shakespeare's character!, whether 
good or had, in history or in romance, 
have an unfailing, sincere, substantial 
humanity which makes them real and 

deceiving of sympathy. 

The two great that the reader 
recognizes as all important in the it hits 
of Shakespeare are honor and trust. 
Morality is with him not I result of 
religion, but a result of high idealism. 
The nature of a man's religion depend! 
on bis character, and the most of Shekel 

pearl's character-studies are, under the 
surface, religious and on a high plain- 
He portrays them in countless human 
problems, but he lets human nature take 
its own true course, and does not attempt 
a solution for human problems as a whole.

Last Wednesday evening Gcorgn Russell AE, famous Irish poet, painter, and 
economist, sixikc at Amherst College. A very meaner handful of the Massachusetts 
Undergraduate body attended this lecture. Those who did go were very enthusiastic 
in their opinion of the talk, which K-' vt ' intimate details of the personalities of many 
of Mr. Russell's modern literary acquaintances. Yet the student members of our 
committee for Social Union entertainments refused to have AE speak here because 

they understood thai he was an "agriculturist." 

Attendance of Bay State students at other Amherst College lectures, such as those 
by Irving Babbitt and Robert A. Millikan, and at dramatic presentation of modern 
playwrights, SUCfa as "Escape" by (ialsworthy, also has been a mere handful. The 
Language and Literature talks on Tuesday evenings' ifl Stockbridge Hall are fairly- 
well attended, but few avail themselves of the opportunity to participate in dis- 
cussions, and many who are there set hi to consider it a duty expected of Language 
antl Literature majors. Response to Ynkhorne appeals showed that aliout half a 
dozen students on this campus are interested in any form of self-expression. 

In the Library, "The American Mercury" has long been asked for. Vet perhaps 
We should not complain too much about the absence of this magazine when we realize 
that few of the students read any controve r s ia l BttfUUKS, like "The Nation," "The 
Forum,*' and 'The Survey" which are now in our Library. They also fail to take 
notice of the "Reader's Digest" which presen t s a co nci s e summary of the most in- 
teresting magazine articles of the current month. They even fail to take cognisance 

of the world, presented daily in newspapers. The comic strips, "Life," and "The 

Saturday Evening Lost" receive the majority of the intellectual attention of M.A.C'. 


In the religious seminar of the pasl week on our campus, most of the students in 
attendant e were either directly concerned in its promotion or were required to attend 

because they were taking Sociology 56. Yet religion is one of the most controversial 

of topics to the average student. Students were willing enough to criticize without 
knowing anything, either of the pu r po s es or of the matters discussed at the seminar, 
but unwilling to participate and offer their criticisms when they might have been of 
some value. 

Is it worth while to draw conclusions? According to evidence which we have pre- 
sented we cannot even be accused of being intellectual dilettantes. It seems that the 
average student is interested in nothin intellectual other than his studies and not 
much concerned about those. Students complain that they are not receiving a prac- 
tical education. Yet they do not take more than a passive interest in the various 
opportunities of a liberal education. 

Oh Yeah 

There has been an amazing growth in 
the number of petty larcenies at this 
college; almost everyone is a thief; very 
few can truthfully assert tiiat they never 
stole any college property. The strangest 
thing about the whole affair is that all 
the culprits say, "I couldn't help it. 1 
didn't mean to do it." Yet they stole, 
and have kept right on stealing. (Don't 
laugh; you too may become a thief the 
next time you poke your head out of 
doors. You won't laugh then.) 

In order to display our scientific train- 
ing we will now pro c eed to get at the 
dirt of the matter. The truth is this; the 
college walks and drives frequently need 
resurfacing and an economical Adminis- 
tration has di scov ered that the cheapest 
way to accomplish this end was to stir 
up the fires in the Lower Plant, send a 
cloud of cinders up the chimney, and let 
gravity do the rest. Every time you get 
a cinder in your eye (ten or fifteen times 
a clay is our schedule) you are stealing 
cinders meant for our walks. Multiply 
\our case- by 900 and you will find that 
the students steal 363,303 cubic- yards of 
cinders from the college each year. In 
cise an appeal to your honor dtx-s not 
work let us remind you that tinders in 
the eyes are mildly irritating. 

YYe have heard, through various chan- 
nels, that some felt that we went beyond 
the bounds of our column last week. We 
reply that we can write about what we 
please, in as many or as few paragraphs 
as we prefer, so long as we do not write 
anything which would offend the delicate 
sensibilities of an inherently conservative 
Collegian Hoard. (Isn't that limit enough?) 

Probably the less we say about the 
religious seminar the better but we can't 
help pointing out that anti-Jewish feel- 
ing was so far eradicated that the Sphinx 
in front of the Hash House was given a 
decidedly Semitic nose. The chances are 
that in a remark like this where we try 
to be funny, we will be taken seriously 
by a few misguided souls. 

We do not suppose that many of you 
went to AE's lecture at Amherst College 
last Wednesday so we can assure you 
that you missed a great deal. We realize 
that there seems to be a prejudice against 
going to lectures of this sort by the State 
College student; which is why we mention 
it. One of the most enjoyable bits was 
Russell's d escri p t ion of (ieorge Moore 
who "had the courage of his convictions 
at the top of his voice." 

Just now we feel like echoing the 
famous words of the pioneers; Co Rest, 
young man, Go rest. 


As mentioned in the adjoining column, during the past week there has been a 
campaign in over one hundred colleges to protest against compulsory military train- 
ing. The Collegian heard nothing of this campaign until last Sunday. Possibly it is 
more ot our intellectual stagnancy as outlined above, but only after a hot day in 
the drill field in the spring are we actively opposed to military. We consider the 
training a necessary evil; some of us maintain that military has distinct advantages 
in teaching discipline and in preparedness. The Liberal Club on campus last year 
decided to work to make compulsory military training optional, but have decided 
not to continue investigation of the project because of lack of interest. 

Bills are pending in Congress which demand the immediate abolition of compulsory 
military drill. In support of these bills, petitions have been circulated among stu- 
dents throughout the country, with the hope of 500,000 signers. The objections ex- 
pressed in these petitions are: 

1. Military drill is a violation of academic freedom, since the R.O.T.C. courses 
are not under the administration of the college but of the War Department. 

2. Military training courses teach doctrines which are contrary to the ideals of 
American government. 

3. Military training courses seek to idealize war, and to inculcate a spirit of un- 
questioning military obedience which is an emotional armament of war. Military 
drill courses are inconsistent with the Kellogg Pact and constitute a grave danger 
to world peace. 

4. The insistence ol the compulsory feature of military training indicates student 
opinion against it, and constitutes a confession of failure. 

Few Upperdassmen at Massachusetts, even after having been subjected to two 
years of military, fail to realize any such influences as above, but only laugh at the 
inconvenience of military to the lower classes. Let us stop to think and realize its 
evils. Although tardy, the Collegian wishes to indorse the campaign against com- 
pulsory military training. 

On behalf of the janitors of the "Mem" 
building we wish to condemn those 
people who stuff the ash trays with 
paper. We condemn them on our own 
account also; we've been accused of the 
act too many times when we were inno- 
cent. (We haven't lieen caught yet!; 

Unless we are very careful we may 
find ourself turning religious (in the 
narrow sense of the word) for we saw a 
miracle last week: In spite of the fact 
that the Carnival had been announced a 
week in advance it failed to melt or rain 
on Saturday. 



U?e Scribe 

Dr. Albert Parker Fitch was born in 
Boston in the year 1877 as a representa- 
tive ol one of the old Boston families. 
Harvard University was the institution 
chosen by him to do his undergraduate- 
work. Soon after obtaining his A.B., the 
young man decided that he would go into 
the ministry so he went to the Union 
Theological Seminary where he received 
his degree of B.D. It was not long before 
he became affiliated with the Andover 
Theological Seminary at Cambridge, later 
becoming president of the institution. 
From there, he went to Amherst College 
where he held the chair of Professor of 
History ot Religion. It was at this time 
that he received the degree of Doctor of 
Divinity from both Amherst and Williams. 
In 1028, Dr. Fitch decided to accept an 
offer to become pastor of the Park Avenue 
Presbyterian Church in New York City 
when be has remained to the present clay. 

Being a teacher most of his life, Dr. 
Fitch lias had ample time to study the 
American college student as regards his 
religious side. On this subject he has 
written several books which show that he 
was alive to what is going on among 
college stutlents of the present generation. 
The titles of some of his books are: The 
College Course and the Preparation for 
Life, Religion and the I nitergradtiate, 
Can the Church Survive in the Changing 
Order?, and Preaching and Paganism. 
From this collection, it may be seen that 
the author has always had the college 
student in view when he was writing his 
books. This is natural since most of his 
life was spent among students, teaching 
them and studying them. 

Dr. Fitch's comment on the attitude 
of the college student of today toward 
religion is worthy of notice. In his 
opinion, the young man has become too 
indifferent about his religious thinking 
and has lost a great deal by not recog- 
nizing that in religion there is a great 
deal to be obtained which cannot be 
found anywhere else. The student of 
today, he says, is being led on by a group 
of pseudo-scientist who are narrow and 
close in their thinking. He argues that 
there is no conflict between science and 
religion and that even the great est 
scientists of today state that we must 
soon be changing our attitude about 
science in its connection with religion. 
• Regarding tolerance, the doctor says 
that, since every religious person believes 
in a God, no matter what faith he pro 
tesses, he should feel that all other people 
believing in Cod and religion are kindred 
spirits and that there is a bond between 

Dr. Fitch is a very determined man 
whose will and ideas are very strongly 
implanted in his mind. He is a firm up- 
holder of his opinions whether they seem 
right or otherwise to the other fellow. 
He is determined to preach the fellowship 
of human beings and has a strong feeling 
against the man who has no mind of his 
own. He is a "pillar of the church." 

We would like to see a seminar in 
which someone could either prove or 
disprove the existence of a god, or gods. 
There are a number of students who 
would be willing to accept an orthodox 
religion except that a belief in God is an 
essential to acceptance, and no one can 
demonstrate to us that such a being 
exists. One Chapel speaker tried to prove 
the existence of God a few years ago by- 
saying that there is a God because there 
has to be a Cod, that God is because he 
is; but such logic does not appeal to the 
skeptic who prefers a slightly more 
definite proof. 



Index Board Meeting 
Thursday, January 22 


Last Saturday at Wilbraham, the St. 
bridge School of Agriculture hockey saxte) 
dropped another game, this time to 
lads of Wilbraham Academy, the score 
for the game being 7-0. The contest 
hot and furious, and was marked by fas] 
skating since the ice was perfect and the 
men in high spirits. Throughout 
game, the Stockbridgers were continually 
on the defense, the Wilbraham aggregate 
being well organized and highly skilled in 
passing the puck through the oppo- 
lines. Harris and Ross of Wilbraham tar 
outshone the rest of the players, being 
fast skaters and very adept at dribbling 
the puck, and together amassed five of 
the seven goals. The other two w< n 
acquired when Chisolm and Carclis 
whipped the disc past Robinson, 
Stockbridge goal-tender. Pearson and I). 
Warren were the outstanding perform. « 
for the Stockbridge team. 

In a game with Deerfield Academy la-t 
Wednesday, the Stockbridge School of 
Agriculture sextet lost to the hockey team 
of the former school by a score of ol on 
the home ice. The Deerfield puchsti 
had the upper edge throughout the game 
with the exception of the closing period 
when the Stockbridge team rallied and 
attempted to regain its laurels in a fierce 
onslaught. Peck and D. AbercromL. 
were the stars for the Deer fielders, scor- 
ing two goals apiece, the fifth tally being 
scored by Hopkins. For the Stockbridgers 
Pearson, Dolan, and D. Warren, who 
scored the single point for his team, shone. 

A week ago last Friday on the College 
rink the Stockbridge School of Agriculture 
pucksters and the Holyoke High School 
sextet battled to a 2-2 tie despite the 
fact that a five-minute overtime period 
was played in an effort to break tin 
deadlock, both teams lacking the nee t - 
sary scoring punch. Coals for the Stock- 
bridgers were made by D. Warren, while 
Rheaume kept his team in the running 
by scoring both Holyoke's tallies. 

Once again the Kolony Klub went over 
the top with their house dance. It WSJ 
held on Saturday evening, January 111, 
and marked the opening of the bOUSC 

after s complete renovation which was 
clone by the members over vacation. The 
chaperons at the dance were Director 
and Mrs. Roland II. Vcrbeck, Profess.r 
and Mrs. Brooks D. Drain, and Professor 
and Mrs. V. (ilatfelter. 


Y.W. dedication of the new Y. Room 
at the Abbey last Wednesday night 
featured the presentation of a pageant 
written especially for the occasion by 
Evelyn Lyman "A\. The theme song of 
the pageant was "New Lamps lor Old." 
Miss Thompson, Secretary ot the Y.W '., 
was guest of the occasion and spoke on 
"Rooms, Their Spirit and Feeling." 
Guests of the faculty were present in- 
cluding Mr. J. Paul Williams, Mr. and 
Mrs. Fred C. Kenney, Miss E. L. Skinner, 
Miss Margaret Hamlin and Miss Helen 
Knowlton. The Y. Room is now open 
for the use of all M.S.C. co-eds for read- 
ing, study and quiet social meetings. 


Our attention was called in a recent chapel to the danger to pedesti ians who traverse 
the "Country Road." The possibilities ol at cident on this stretc h of road are apparent, 
and the need ol care is obvious. However, the most certain solution to the problem 

is the building <>: a sidewalk cm the college land between the junction of Pleasant 
Street and Olmstead Drive to the Experiment Station. Probably the mam reason for 
the non-exi-Hine of the walk at present is la< k of money, but we lUggeSt that the 
sidewalk be built as soon Bl funds are available. 

We have heard some derogatory com- 
ments on the quality of the singing in 
the Monday and Friday morning Chapels 
but we assure you that it is not as bad 
as it might be— we do not sing (or even 
try to). 

There is really nothing like a good old 
fashioned sleigh ride in a bus.

Freshmen 2, Juniors 4 

The first interclass hockey game of the 
season took place at the rink, Wednesday, 
January 14, and resulted in a 4-2 victory 
for the Juniors over the Freshmen. 
Holmberg starred for the upperdassmen, 
while Snow and Goodhue showed up well 
for the class of '34. 

Seniors 4, S.S.A. 2 

In a hard-fought game at the rink, 
Wednesday, January 14, at 7:15, the 
Seniors triumphed over the Stockbridge 
'31 aggregation by a final tally of 4-2. 
Hays and Warren registered well for the 
M.A.C. Seniors.

Fast action marked the lux key game 
in which the Stockbridge Freshmen were

present generation can ill afford to ignore 
—the recorded experiences of their suc- 
cesses as well as their failures. On tin 
other hand the future extend., its p romi see, 
the realization of which the present is 
responsible. Primarily, however, the 
present generation must develop within 
itself certain capacities which shall con- 
tribute to the best interests of its own 

"The process of learning must go on 
always," said Dean Marriiier, "and 
meditation is the governor on the mechan- 
ism." There were five important cap.u i- 
ties which the educator stressed as im- 
portant to present clay people: (I) the 
ability tO think and act consistently; '-' 
the ability to take nothing for granted, 
vet to be appreciative <>i all consider- 
ations; (3) the capacity for susp en d e d 
judgment; (4) the desire to accomplish 
daily tasks well, and finally (">) the belief 

that present advantages are adequate for 

lite s needs that it is better to make t In- 
most of what exists rather than to cant 
about for what the future may hold. In

say's talk constituted a sound and con 
centrated summation of the three-day 
religious conference held on the campus 
this week-end. 

There is a great need today, the 
speaker said, for the world to understand 
and practice "the finest of fine arts- t he- 
art of living peacefully, happily, and con- 
tentedly together in its business, social 
religious, national, and international re- 
lationships." This need presents a dis- 
tinct challenge to the American people- 
particularly, and more specifically to 
American youth in college. To some 
extent the business world, through its 
men's clubs, is meeting the challenge. 

and tO .1 great degree the churches have 
already mastered "the- art." 

Rev. Lindsay recommended lour very 

effective means for attacking the problem 
under consideration. These wtie in 
order: "ill Seek to nuclei stand one 
another; (2) seek to idealize one another; 
(ty practice the (.olden Rule; and (4) be 
loyal to \otir best religious convictions." 
In conclusion the speaker stressed the 
key act to the realization ol each of 
these "Don't be too ready tO criticize; 
learn rather to appreciate."

out the Northeastern pucksters last 
Saturday afternoon on the college pond, 
3 to (», in a game, which although it was 
slow due to soft ice, was very interesting 
to watch. Because of the soft ice, it was 
impossible to present much of an exhi- 
bition of team play. However, Forest, 
second forward lineman, pushed the puck 
past the Northeastern goalie and Captain 
"Ed" Frost secured the other point. 
Forest scored his two points, one from a 
difficult angle shot, and the other follow 
ing a face-off in front of the Northeastern 
net. Frost scored near the end of the 
game when the Husky goalie had mo-

promoted by the Winter Sports Club, 

led by Robert Labarge '30.

won by Floyd M. (ialbraith S.S.A. '.'i2 
averaging 1 1 .. r > meters Knute A. 1 laukclid 
'34 took second place averaging 
meters. The cross-country skiing contest 
in the morning was won by Francis A.

afternoon Knute A. Ilaukelid '34 finished 
first in the same type of contest in 20 
minutes. Before the varsity hockey game 
with Northeastern James M. Merrill 'M 
figured in a special skating exhibition of 
the "spread eagles." During the evening 
an especially fine example of fancy skat- 
ing was executed by Robert l-abarge '.'SO 
and Miss Lillian Lacroix of Holyoke. 

Events on Sunday began with an 
examination of the snow models at the 
fraternity houses. Kappa Kpsilon re- 
ceived s|)ecial commendation on its new 
Physical Kducation Building model, while 
Delta PW Alpha's elephant was unique

day was spent skating, skiing, and snow- 
ball-fighting. The cheer of warm lunches 
and good coffee symbolized the spirit of 
fellowship pervading the entire carnival. 

Secretary in the Department of Reeearcii

Chun lies, could not appear. In his stead 
Mr. Bruno Lasker was present to take 
over Dr. I.andis' place. Mr. l.asker is an 
author of note, having published several 
books on Race Prejudice. He is also one 
of the heads of the "Inquiry," a national 
movement for the study of human rela- 
tions. Dr. Denis A. McCarthy, poet and 
lecturer, Rabbi Harry Kaplan of Pitts- 
field, and Prof. Frank Prentice Rand of 
this College, were leaders of the various 
Round Table discussions. 

Several general conclusions were ar- 
rived at as a result of the Seminar. It 
was decided that prejudice is foolish and 
that we ought to have mutual under- 
standing between faiths. We understand 
that there are differences between faiths, 
but these have been greatly exaggerated. 
The fundamental reality under all faiths 
is the same. Faiths should agree to differ 
in many things, but fundamentally 
answering the same needs.

of sincere questioning, wondering what 
the true values are in religion. Dr. F itch, 
according to his statement, would have 
no use for either of these stands. The 
more general opinion, however, was that 
a man had religion as long as he believed 
in some all-governing power. Dr. Fitch 
had no use for liberals in religion.

Fine Etching Exhibit 

Students of the College returned last 
week to discover another excellent art 
exhibition on display in the Memoria 
Building. From the Artists' Shop, Nash- 
ville, Indiana, Professor Waugh has 
secured about forty prints representing 
six outstanding contemporary artists, 
namely: Frederick Policy, L. O. Criffith, 
Charles W. Dahlgreen, Eugenie daman, 
Oscar B. Ericksop, and Fred T. Larson. 
In subject matter the pictures offer a 
great range of variety. Polley, Criffith, 
Dahlgreen, and Erickson deal largely 
with landscapes, while < .lam. m treats of 
farm stock, and Larson of architectural 
features. The Adirondacks claim most of 
Policy's attention, but some of Criffith's 
most interesting work portrays life in 
foreign sections of America. 

The Dean's Scholarship '.roups for the

Of no less interest than the subject 
matter is the mode of rendering used by 
these artists. The greater part of the 
work is produced by means of etching*. 
Griffith's studies, which are the most 
colorful ot the exhibition, are made by 
colored etching*, while Hrickson's, also 
of color, but of a much darker tone, are 
made b\ Mock-prints. The use of wood- 
cuts is also represented, as in the work 
of Larson. In about one-half of his 
pictures Polley has attained an interest- 
ing soft effect by the use of "dry points." 
His "Shadow Hill Farm" in dry point is, 
in fact, one of the more highly valued 
pictures of the exhibition, as is also his 
etching of "Brooklyn Bridge." 

In short, from the Standpoints of 
composition, subject matter, rendering, 
Bttd color this exhibition is of especial 
interest to students of art and is worthy 
of inspection and study by everyone.

Massachusetts Hockey Six 
Victors in Two Home Games 

Hard-fought i to 2 Win Against New 

Hampshire Decided by Cain's 

Goal in Third Period 

With but a few minutes to plav and 
vith five men on the ice, GeOTfS Cain, 
center in the second forward line, dashed 
the length of the rink and single-handed 
whipped the puck past the opposing 
goalie to break a 12-2 tie and win the 
game for Massachusetts in the game with 

New Hampshire State at the college pond 
last Friday. The victory gave to the 
state college pucksters six straight wins, 
and the seventh in eight starts, while up 
to List Friday the New Hampshire sextet 
had lost but one contest in six, that 
being at the hands of Brown I'niversity 
■quad. Tikofski and Cain did all the 
scoring for the Bay Staters, the latter 
muting for two of the three tallies, 
throughout the game, the play was very 
ta^t, both teams taking advantage of 
every chance to score. When the state 
college pucksters did not have the disc 
■I their opponents goal, the skaters from 
Durham were striving to break through 
the excellent defense mechanism of 
Hammond and Brown whose checking 
was the best seen on the college pond for 

some years. 

Massachusetts scored first when Tikof- 
iki took a neat pass from "Herby" 
Forest who had managed to extract the 
pink from a scrimmage at the New 
Hampshire goal and it remained for 
"Tic" to push it into the net. The lead 
was but short lived, lor in the second 
p. riixl Croke's long shot from center ice 
skimmed by Mitchell who failed to see 
the on-coming puck became of the poor 
lighting. Cain put the state college 
teste! again into the fore with a fine shot 
in which he had been assisted by Forest 
who had snapped the puck to him at the 
right moment. Soon after Wootridgs 
evened the score with another long shot 
which Mitchell missed. The third |>eriod 
opined with a tie score, and both teams

Pucksters Run Wild Over Wesleyan

and White Combination Is 
Formidable Opponent 

Tonight, Massachusetts resumes re- 
lations with Springfield College in basket- 
ball on the Drill Hall floor at seven 
o'clock. Springfield, the pioneer college 
m basketball, for it was at Springfield 
College that the popular court game was 
invented, usually presents a classy outfit. 

i this year, the Red and White has 
not fared as well as in previous years, 

yet they have a rather envious early 
season record with wins over Tufts, 
Huts;, rs, Pratt, and Stroudsburg, having 
losl to Arnold and Won ester Tech. 
Springfield employs a fast -breaking 

nse, taking many shots at the basket, 

in fa t too many for comfort. The whole- 

made up of large men, the true 

"! type. Crutch, who usually plays 
in the right forward position is an out- 

iding star. The possible starting 

Hp will be: Cook, lb; l'oten, rb; 
VVells, i ; Crutch or Becker, rf; and Miller

Massachusetts' fifth straight hockey 

win resulted when the Wesleyan puckstcn 
invaded the college pond rink and met the 
M.A.I', varsity sextet in ■ OOe-sided affair 
which ended in a 10-0 victory tor the 
state collegians. Throughout the con- 
test, the Wesleyan aggregation was de- 
cidedly Ottt-chused and with the possible 
exception of the first period when its 

members waged the best fight, it never 
threatened the Bay State goal and was 

entirely OH the defense. Captain Frost 

led the Massachusetts scorers in numbst 

of goals with three points to his credit, 
while Cain followed close behind with 
tWO tallies. For the Wesleyan team, 
Giffud and G u er ns ey were the outstand- 
ing pe rf or m ers. 

After fivtj minutes of play in the first 
period the first score was made when 
Forest whirled up the ice and unassisted 
slammed the puck past goalie Blakeslee. 
In this period Wesleyan played its best 
game, and the Bay Staters were able to 
score but one more goal, which CUM 
near the end when Cain, center in the 
second line- formation, took a pass from 
Forest and shot the disc into the net. 

The second frame found the men in a 
scoring mood, and with the regular de- 
fense men guarding the goal, the second 
forward line swept up the ice and tallied

Bible Praised 

by Dean Brown 

Yale Divinity School Dean Upholds 
Scriptures in Sunday Chapel 

Asserting that the church of today has 

broken away from the dogmatism of 
William Jennings Bryan's statement dur- 
ing the Sc opes trial, "If it is in the Bible, 
I believe it," and hurling caustic criti- 
cism at the new school of sociologists 
being led by Harry Elmer Barnes, "who 
thinks that we ought to throw the Bible 
away and read him," Dean Charles K. 
Brown of the Yale Divinity School pre- 
scribed what to him seemed to be- the 
better interpretation, at the Sunday 
morning chapel address at Bowker Audi- 
torium, January 2">. He pointed out the 
fallaciousness and the profoundly of the 
moral code embodied in certain passages 
of the New and Old Testaments, and ex- 
plained that the defects were naturally 
to be expected. "The Bible is the record 

of progressive revelation" he declared, "en 

WC expect to find mistakes in its early 
portions. When the human race- was a 
child, it spoke as a child, and wrote as a 
child. As the i m pe rfe ctions are there, we 
must expect to find them." 

Dean Brown particularly deplored the 
attitude of the presen t generation in its 
rejection O the Bible, thinking thai 
since it was written nineteen hundred to 
three thousand \ears ago. 'What did 
those old fathers know of modern life 
and the United States.''" lla\e we out 
grown the Bible? So long as we Cannot 

outgrow our appreciation for the majestic 

beauty Of the Lincoln Memorial, the 

artistir magnificence of the Canterbury 

Cathedral, or the splendid depiction of 
true spiritual motherhood of Raphael's 
Madonna, we cannot outgrow the Bible. 
On the contrary, the importance of this 
book is reaching gigantic proportions. 
The text is read in every church on every 
Sunday, and has been translated into 
more than 400 tongues. 

Dean Brown pointed out the incon- 
sistency of the various pa wages of the 
Bible, showing the two accounts of the 
Creation as narrated in the first and 
second chapters of Genesis, and the three- 
accounts of the Commandments as stated 
in the Books of the Exodus, I teuterononrj . 
and the elongations in the New Testa- 
ment. Many of our previous Speakers 
here have expressed their concern over 
the avowed indifference, or lack of 
religion in the modern college Student.

Horticulturist Who Died Friday 
Had Active Fife 

Student body and faculty mourn 
the' recent death of I'rolcssoi 
Charles II. Thompson of the Horti- 
cultural Department. Professor 
Thompson is remembered not only 

as a teacher of plant materials and 

the associat ion and relationships 

ot plants, but more especially from 
the students' point of view, as one 
interested in students, their ideas 
and life. Professor Thompson died 

in his home on Fridav afternoon 
alter a long illne-ss. 

Professor Thompson was bom at 

Turlock, California, sixty-one yean 
ago. He- was graduated from 
Kansas State Agricultural College 
in \S\Y.\. Professor Thompson was 
.i specialist in Botany in the Shaw 
gardens at St. Louis and instructor 

in Botany at Missouri State I'm 

varsity from 1803 to I8B0; forest 
ranger in the Sierra Nevada r e serv e 

for three- years following; graduate 
Student at I. eland Stanford in 

California from 190S to l'.x>4; 

botany assistant, seed inspector, 
and collaborator in the United 
States Department of Agriculture 
from 1904 to 1912. 

In 1915 Professor Thompson 

came to Amherst and has since- 
given his time to his position on 

our faculty in the horticultural de- 

Professor Thompson is author 

and co-author of several pamphlets 

among them the- one "Hardy 
Woody Plants." In this bulletin, 

•assisted by Protessoi Waugh he 

listed over five hundred plant 

species, trees and shrubs, as de- 
termined and catalogued by him- 
self. He has also catalogued all the 
plants and shrubs brought from 
Labrador by Professor Sears. 

In Amherst, Professor Thompson 
has participated in community life 

as a member <>f the Pacific Lodge 

of Masons, Amherst Orange, and 
was a past patron of Cnity Chapter, 
Eastern Star. He was known as 
an amateur actor and has been 
president of the Amherst Dramatic 


In lois Professor Thompson's 

wife died. He is survived by a son, 

Rufus, a student at the University

Wesleyan and New Bedford 
Outclassed by Zebra Five 

Textile School Defeated 25 to 9 in 

Rather Listless Contest on Drill 

Hall Surface Saturday Niftht 

In a disappointing contrast to last 
Wednesday's game with Wesleyan, the 

Massachusetts varsity basketball team 

siiucd an easy 38 to srin over the- 
basketeers from the New Bedford Textile 
School last Saturday evening in the I >t ill 

Hall. This name- is the only letup which 
the State College varsity will have- for 
the remainder ot the season and COttSe 

quently it was a rather listless affair. At 

least it gave Coach I'.llert a chance- to 
use nearly every man on the se|tiacl who 

was in uniform and provided the- sopho 

mores with a c ham e to lie-come used to 

\aisit y competition. 

Captain Staniaiewaki opened the 
Zebra's attack by scoring two l»aske-ts in

Maroon and White was k (, '"H 00 a SCOT 

inK rampage led l>> "Stan." However, 

this idea did not last long as the lias 
Staters began tO handle the- ball loosely 
and "Stan" confined himselt to the long 
shot variety. Davis and Ahlstrom scored 
on free throws and "Stan" and Ahlstrom 
tallied two more points apiece on success 

fnl floor shots. Cook scored the only 
tally for the New Bedford men during 

the first epiarter on a fre-e throw. At the 

end of the first ipiarte-i, the score- was

For several winters Mr. Lindsay lectured

through many states. On these- jeiurneys

a distinctly Wesleyan flavor, as te-n

During these- ten minutes, Johnstone had 
sunk a long shot and Streibinucr hail

At last we have found a good excuse 
for what some people (hose to call our 
l.i/iuess, or time-wasting. According to 
sonic economists the present period 0l 
depression is due to overproduction in 
the past. Think how much worse the 
situation would be it we had spent all 
our spare time busily producing.

S.S.A. IS, Amherst High 11 

Stockbridge hoopsti rs came out on the 
long end of an IS to 11 score in a rather 
tame game with the Amherst High 
basketeers at the Drill Hall last Tuesday 
evening. Hoardman, of the Stockbridge 
•quad was high scorer for the evening, 
he totaled 9 points, and was seconded 
by I'ray of the local high school with 
six points. 


Fifteen years ago, Charles II. Thompson came to this College to teach horticulture. 
Today, the whole College mourns (or the loss of one of its most valued professors. 
Beginning at the bottom rung. Pr o fe ssor Thompson worked himself up to a pro- 
fessorship and into the high estimation of all who came into contact with him. Friend- 
ly, delightful to talk tO, and generous too linn h so at times, he was liked bv both 

faculty and student-. As a teacher, Professor Thompson was in full command of 
his subject, being among the best of plant botanist*. Hi* training had been rich and 
extensive, with travelling and collecting playing a very important part. The** who 
remember him a* an actor in local productions will recall thai he excelled in charac- 
terisation, his loud av. nation. A lover of nature and the wide, open he de- 
lighted in the enjoyment ..t long hikes and frequent walks. Honest, upright, and 

sincere, he always walked With Ins head high. He was « man among men. Requu 

in pace I 


Several times in past years the qUCStUM of a RUUM Ol has ,„-< upicd the attention of 
the students of the College. The upshot of the matter on everv occasion has been 
thai the Student* COUld not possibly *ee how * mascot suitable to everyone could be 
Chosen, and, if chosen, by whom it would be selected. Moreover, many said that 

mascots wire very seldom chosen but that they just naturally became applied to 

certain institutions and were synonymous with the name, as the Yale Hull Dog antl 

the Princeton Tiger. And, anally, many asked the question: why have any mascot? 

Some Stttdentl persist in thinking that * maaCOl would be I good thing and often 
talk about it. We feel that the adoption of an official mascot is not such a bad idea 
at that, especially at this time when our teams are making a great name for them- 
selves ami for the College. Concerning the objection* raited about choosing an 
official mascot, we test assured that the) can all be answered to th»- satisfaction <>t 

gi! those ion. fined. We aim to pr. m nt herein a lew suggestions as to how they 

could be answered. 

To begin with, why should we have a mascot? Because every' other col!.-., has 
one? Because it is easier for reporter* to write up athletic contests? Because it 
sound- good? Because it tvpiiies our fighting spirit? Yes, all that, but more too. 

We an all tired of reading of games where oar team- are a "bunch of farmers." "hay- 

shakers," el cetera ad infinitum. Thai is reason enough in itself. Besides, when the 

referee at I basketball game calls tor time out. why not use the mascot's name in- 
stead oi saying what he says now? More reaei n! 

K, the question ol choosing the nam., we suggest that the student body 

do the * ot would be representative of them. We also suggest tiie mascot he chosen this yeai because we have knowledge that our teams are 
1„ lubbed with a name which reporters think is appropriate. We think SO too 

I, radually worked into the mascot idea. This means that the appelation 

fust naturall) become applied, and is not the result of random choice. We refer 

to the word "Zebras" which certain ones have ol late applieiHo our basketball team. 

The word "Zebras" in itself is not an imposing term nor docs it apply to a very 
ferocious animal. When one stop- to consider it. however, it is found to be a very 
apt appelation. It came, no doubt, from the lamous and very descriptive name 
given to our basketball team. 'The Stars in Strips." It could apply, also, to both 
our football and our hockey teams which sport modified convicts' apparel. It is, 
therefore, a vnv appropriate cognomen lor our famous athletic teams. Why not 
make it utile ial? I.veryone will have plenty of time to consider this suggestion before' 

the next Student Forum when such a thing should be of importance. Let's get be- 
hind the Zebras! 

If, to your highly developed aesthetic 

ami critic al tastes, this week's ' 

IS unusually poor let us remind you 
that we have the perfect alibi. (Our 
motto is, "An alibi for every occasion 

and two if the police are concerned.") 
Through some mis-management on the 

part of the janitors the Collegian office 
has been swept and mopped and dusted 

and generally made respectable. We had 

a terrible shock when wc looked in; and 
anyway, who can work in such an atmos- 
phere? This alibi is good only for this 
week we'll soon mess up the otlicc again) 
but we can easily find a new excuse next 


We blush to think how good this 
column WOUld be if we only had a BoSWtU 
who would be content to spe-nel his time 
trailing us around and noting down the 
pearls of wisdom that drop from our lips. 
Most of our brilliant remarks are lost 
beC*U*f we aren't quite brilliant enough 
to remember them; if WC had a Unwell 
there'd be no escape for you. No, we're 

not mad. We didn't think you'd believe 

all this anyhow . 

That last paragraph really doesn t 
mean much but the** long silences are 
ftp embarrassing, and WC just had to say 
something. We wire actually following 
the course adopted by many students for 
classroom use when they elo not know the 
answer to a question but ramble- on hoping 
that eventually they will -tumble on tie 
right answer. 

Deerfield 42, S.S.A. 18 
The basketeer* from Deerfield Acad- 
emy SWOOped down on the Drill Hall 
Thursday and threw the Stockbridge 

hoop-men for a 42 to 18 loss, lighting 
valiantly the Stockbridge men could not 
stem the rush that was headed by 
Scbechan, Turner and Cordon. Hoard- 
man, high scorer for the Stockbridge 
team could not compete' with the basket 

shooting of the Deerfield experts, 

S.S.A. 2, Amherst Frosh 1 

In an exciting overtime period, the 
Stockbridge hoe key team won from the 
Amherst Frosh by 2 to 1 score at I'ratt 
Kink, on Thursday. A fast, hard-fought 
game netted each ot tiie- teams one goal 
in the- second period. D. Warren ol the 

Stockbridge squad, and < rwen of Amherst , 

each made an unassisted goal in that 
period. Neither team was able to break 
the tie in the last period, and so the- 
game went into an overtime |>crio<l of 
live- minutes. In this period, Duffill, of 

Stockbridge, received a pass from Peter 

son, and slippe-el the puck over for the 
winning goal. Robinson, Stockbridge 

goalie, played brilliantly for the winners, 

turning away many hard shots. 

Agronomy Club 
The Stockbridge Agronomy Club held 

its initial meeting on Tuesday, January 
20. The Club is now under the guidance 
of Louis Watts and John Hrox, Stock

A. Thelin, a graduate student of this 
college, who for the past six years has 
been a missionary to China. Mr. Thelin 
by means of colored lantern slides, intro- 
duced Chinese agriculture to his audie-mc 
and told of its problems. 

To the Editor <>f the Collegian; 

In the ColUgian for Wednesday, J.u 

21, 1031, an editorial appeared wfaich 

seemed to set forth the essence of studen 
Opinion on one matter which it will provi 
to be quite worthwhile tor us to invest 
gate-. I refer to the editorial under tin- 
heading: "Compulsory Military Iran 
ing." The concluding sentence of tin 
article was as tollows: "Although tarcK, 
the Collegian wishes to endorse the 
campaign against compulsory milit.n 
training." By way of an answer to the 
editorial I am quoting from a recent 

"One of the most appalling things in 

life is the inability ot man to learn from 

his experience. I reco^ni/e the same 
tendency in myself, which makes matter- 
worse, not better, for it only adds to tin 
intensity of my exaspe-ration. WHY arc 
men such fools? 

"What has happened.-'" someone asked 
"Nothing, except always," an 

swered. "The fools I find especially, 
exasperating for the moment are Arneri 

and England, with a large- section of th« 
French people included. The war taught 
them absolutely nothing. In 1915J the 
were convinced that Germany was peso 

loving, and in any ease would not risk 

her commercial succe— by an 'rash 

aggressive act. (But Knglanel w 
warned; France too!... America, ol 
course, did not think about it at all: w*J 
not America sufficient unto itself, with 
it- vast undeveloped resources, anil nunc 
than fully Occupied with the StupendoUl 
task a religious duty indeed! of U 
trading the- greatest possible- amount of 
Wealth from every source whatsoever? It 
was inconceivable that any nation or race- 
of men could have any other aim. And 

Tiie question rise-, is it worthwhile to 

bluff when you dci not know the an-wer 

to a question? The sterner moralist* 

No" most emphatically the typical 

-.•il grapes attitude because they are 

not able to do so. We say, bluff e >i\ 
time you do not know your stuff; it 
ibices you training in meeting emergencies, 
in thinking on your feet, it develop* the 
imagination, stimulates self-confidence, 
and bes i des, you may gw na right. Even 

if you are WTOnfj /eio tor giving the 
wrong answer is no larger than the zero 
rece-ived for Baying meekly and humbly.

During the past few week-, main student- have- had the urge to go down to the 
pond to skate . Many have- gone but it is very questionable whether they have en- 
joyed it or not. Right in the center of the pond is the hockey rink where there are 
usually several playing "shinny" if the varsity or semie- other team is not playing or 
practicing. Outside the rink, one collides with myriads of small boys who skate 
around pushing pucks everywhere without regard for other skaters. Theft i-- scarce 
enough room to make- s i irele around the outside of the rink, and even this space is 
very rough. What is the trouble? The answer is that there is not half enough ice 
cleared off for anyone to skate on. The pond is large enough but apparently someone 
thinks that it is nut worth clearing. If it were, we sincerely believe that more stu- 
dents would take- the opportunity to skate the riupon. It would also be a good thing 
if the boards wc re taken down when tiie rink is not in use. This would give people a 
chance to skate freely and enjoy the good ice.

We have not seen Dean Burnt for some 

time and we sincerely hope that he is not 
sick. With Dean gone Amherst would 
,. -e half of its college town atmosphere. 
We heartily disprove of the general bait 
ing of such characters yet we must admit 
that Dean's speeches are sorely missed at 
basketball games. They added some- 
thing to the occasion which cannot be 
replaced by poor singing of the Alma 

We do not know if Dean Burns and 
the freshman class are well-acquainted 
but we are inclined to think not. (If 
we're wrong we'll soon hear about it.) 
We do not recall his speaking at any of 
our half-hearted football rallies anti we 
are sure that he had no opportunity at 
our unattended Mountain Pay to say 
that the best thing for this college would 
be a thousand more co-eds.

Dear Mr. Hicks: 

Contrary to the habit of years, I 
followed the basketball team to Amherst 
last night, and viewed, if not enjoyed, 
an excellently played game. I want to 
congratulate you on the spirit of sports- 
manship and the playing ability of your 
men. both were very excellent. 

Contrary to what you might think. I 
have been around epiite a bit myself and 
have seen a great many games on our 
own court and away, and I feel epiite 
Certain that I have never seen a croud 
of college- students conduct I heniselv is 
so ne-. illy perfect!) as was the- ea-e with 
the crowd which attended the- ^anu- last 
night. It was vary refreshing and stimu- 
lating in that not one word or a single- 
action appeared which in any wa\ 

savored of unsportsmanlike conduct. I 

think that we- all ex|K-ct, when games are 
e loM ami officials are calling fouls, to 
hear eominents from the crowd indicating 

their dissatisfaction. That waa not the 

c ase- last night.

Dr. Hrown places the responsibility for 
this on the Churchmen: "If the ministers 
had explained the Bible ami showed its 
weaknesses and strength, the student 
would not have taken it into philosophy 
and science for contrast." 

The bible is not infallible, but we can 
never outgrow the truths embodied in it, 
he concluded. "It is the greatest single 
urge to righteousness we know anything 
about. Uansack the libraries of the 
world, if you will, and if you can bring 
me statements better or as good as those 
infused in the King James version of the 
Bible, I will read them to my congre- 
gation in the Vale 1'niversity Chapel 
next Sunday." 

Next Saturday night, January 31, the

wak are the committee in charge. Al- 
though this is the first sernior ball ever 
to be held, the girls of *31 hope that 
their dance will establish a precednet for 
future senior classes.

Zebra Sextet Loses to New York 

Club in One of the Hardest 

Fought Games of Year 

Scoiir.g in each period, the Hamilton 
College- sextet broke the six game- winning 

streak of the Massachusetts puckmen at 

Clinton, N. Y ., last Saturday, evening, 
dc bating the State Collegians by a .'< to 1 
SCOre. This game was one- e>f the fastest 
games witnessed in Hamilton's indoor 
i ink this season. 

After a nine hour trip to Clinton, the 
lias StS e Sextet certainly was not in the 

!>■• i of inebtion to tackh- i team that 

exieedc-d the- spei dv New Hampshire 
team in exhibiting fast hoe key. The first 
period both teams played fast and clean 
but .is the game wore on the Bay Staters 
became tired and play got rougher with 
Hamilton being penalized six times and 
the State College five times in the last 

two periods. 

Wettlaufer, Continental's right wing, 
accounted for two of the Ruff and Blue 
scores and Captain Wilson tallied their 
third goal. G eo rg e Cain, Maroon and 
White center on the second forward line, 
increased his already long string of tallies 
when he sunk a clever shot unassisted 
during the early part of the third period. 

Moth goalies had an evening of it, 
Fames, Hamilton cage- tender, having IJ7 
stops to his credit and Mitchell, guarding 
the Maroon and White net, made 2f 
saves. Roth teams played an offensive- 
brand of hockey, Hamilton taking 66 
shots at the net tO 52 by the- Massachu- 
setts men. Therefore, even though the 
State Collegians did not win, they were 
more accurate in shooting than their 
hosts, and it was only the good work of

Following their custom of the past few- 
years Professors Julian and Codding pre- 
sented, last Tuesday evening, January 27, 
one of their popular musical lectures as a 
part of the weekly talks given by the 
Language and Literature departments. 
The subject chosen was Wagners Lalwn- 
l^rin. Professor Julian presented a brief 
history of the myth which the great 
opera presents. A fact of much interest 
was that part of Professor Julian's speech 
was a reading from an old volume which 
Doctor Coessman bought while he was 
studying in Germany. Professor Julian 
described in part the folk lore of the 
Crail and the life of Parsival, the father 

of Lohengrin, who after many ad v e nture s 
and after leading an honorable life was 
finally judged worthy to become m as t e r 
of (iraalberg Castle in which the Grail 
oeriodically appeared.

We said last week that no good news-

spite of our reputation for at curate re- 
porting) somebody believed us. The 
"M" Building janitors are doing their

our office bulletin board: 'Tig-pens are

called a rural analogy.

"No Oppo siti on to the proposed change of the name of the Massachusetts Agri- 
cultural College was heard when the matter was discussed before the legislature 
committee on education. A favorable report may therefore be expected on the bill." 

The above quotation from an editorial of last Sunday's .Springfield Republican is 
indicative of editorial opinion all over the state. The bill is on its way to be a law 
and should be such before the end of this month. 

The hearing was held last Wednesday, and was well attended. Eight delegates 
of the Trustees were present with twenty alumni and seven friends of the College. 
There was no opjxwition and the committee seemed to be favorably impressed. If 
it was, it will recommend the change when it presents the bill to the legislature to 
be voted upon. Then, after it has been favorably voted upon three times and has 
the governor's signature, it will become a law, and we will become students of a 
STATE college. 

Some enterprising soul had the time 
of his young life the other night when he 
ripped out the gas feed lines in the car 
parked by the I'hi Sig house. Some 
people may regard such malicious and 
wanton destruction as the height of good 
clean collegiate fun but somehow we do 
not share this opinion. 


It would seem that the Dean wis sur- 
prised to find that we had soaked up the 
spirit of sportsmanship to such an extent 
that we did not throw any hymnals at 
the movie last Friday morning. We are 
quite able to recall a humnal-laden 
atmosphere at a similar occasion a few 
years ago. (We were hit in the ear!) 


There is nothing so ridiculous as telling the college student to study, but apparently 
such warnings are needed, at least six times each year, at every mid-term and every 
final. Is it true that the student mind is absolutely incapable of perceiving the in- 
evitability of examinations whether or no such examinations are of any positive 
benefit? Presumably every freshman is inoculated with the idea that it is both 
valuable and necessary to systematize his studies; yet are there any who actually 
do so? The nearest the average student comes to getting any system into his studies 
is to elect a series of "guts" which require no preparation. Yet, strive as he will, 
the time comes when he must take courses which are not so easy; then he either 
thinks, or receives I passing mark (not always) and boasts that he never "cracked a 
book." Even our best students claim that they never study and seem proud of the 
"honor." People do not attend M.S.C. for social benefits, nor do they come here if 
they are in search for pure knowledge; obviously there must be some reason for their 
attendance which they presume will aid them in their future efforts to earn a living. 
Might it not be wise for them to earn some grades which will prove that their stay 
here was not entirely unjustified? 

The mentality of the average student 
is below the average, but he is at least 
consistent in his actions and opinions. 
We remember, as a freshman, taking a 
course in which the members of the class 
often wished to express their own opinions 
and ideas but they were quickly cured; 
and we went around muttering the slogan, 
"Be original but don't be different." In 
numerous other classes the student got 
the opinion that expressing his own views 
was not quite in good taste, so he accused 
the prof, of narrow-mindedness and in- 
tolerance because his ideas were not 
welcomed. Now that the student can 
take such courses as lint. 90 and Soc 55 
where student thought and expression of 
ideas are welcomed, and he can say just 
as much as he wants to; he says nothing 
whenever discussion is invited.

Happy days are here again and we are 
to have a new clock in the Chapel tower; 
and some egg asked Mr. Wood, the 
librarian, if he rang the bell for Chapels 
and classes and somebody else wanted to 
know if the new library would contain 
only new books. 

If we were not afraid of getting involved 
in a bitter controversy we would present 
this as our own idea but actually we read 
it in some other college paper, "If the 
Administration raised the prices at the 
bookstore ten percent it could afford to 
eliminate all tuition fees. 

Kolony Klub won the first bridge

Strange how few t>eople laughed at the 
amusing things in Yachel Lindsay's read-

his smile. We wonder how many people 
were disappointed when they found that 
Vachel was a poet and not the famous 
Judge Hen. It took some time before we 
overcame our bashfulness and really 
asked, "And what did you see in Pales- 
tine?" And we collected some dirty looks 
the next day in Stockbridge for shouting 
out the news about John L. Sullivan. Our 
main impression of Lindsay was an adam's 
apple and a bobbing head and a big 


l!?e Scribe 

It was a gay circle that gathered around 
the festive board that memorable night 
when Vachel Lindsay came to town to 
chant his poems and sing his songs. Kacb 
One hail come to hear the songster give 
bis ideas on things in general and, if 
possible, to listen more closely to the 
poet's lyrics if he could be persuaded 
to read more. Not one of the invited 
guests was disappointed because the 
banquet proved to be one long to be re- 
membered by those who attended. Among 
those present to make the evening more 
delightful was a poet well-known to 
people in Amherst, Walter Dyer, whose 
wit and humor served to keep the guests 
amused when Mr. Lindsay was not enter- 
taining the company. 

As a humble listener, Ye Scribe eagerly 
took note of all that was said during the 
evening ami even ventured to ask a few 
questions himself. It was very interest- 
ing to note that Mr. Lindsay had some 
very definite ideas about different people 
and things. When questioned about 
Robert Frost his only reply was that the 
New England poet was "a good Demo- 
crat." Regarding Countee Cullen, the 
celebrated negro poet, the chanter de- 
clared that he considered him among the 
first four poets of today and that so long 
as people were calling every other Ameri- 
can poet "the greatest of living American 
poets" there was no reason at all why 
Cullen himself should not be named such 
also. Mr. Lindsay termed Masefield as a 
"very quiet, shy" individual who was his 
host during his stay in England. Tunney, 
former heavyweight champion, seemed to 
the poet just an ordinary, serious-minded 
person who was interested in reading 
books, "a real college junior." 

Mr. Lindsay had several things to say 
about his readings. In answer to a 
cjuestion about whether he had ever 
found an audience that would not sing, 
he replied that he had always been 
successful in getting them to sing. One 
group insisted on singing most of his 
songs with him. He said that he had 
read his noisy poems to the audience at 
this College because he considered that 
the dulcet ones would not be well re- 
ceived. In commenting upon his activity 
upon the stage, the author remarked that 
he was not as young as he used to be 
and that jumping around the stage was a 
little too strenuous for a man of his age. 
All of his remarks were tinged with a 
subtle wit and a musical tone which was 
very noticeable. 

Three poems by the singer served to 
make the evening very enjoyable. Mr. 
Lindsay set the group roaring when he 
recited "The Drunkard's Funeral" and 
finished up by turning to Walter Dyer 
who sat next to him and saying: "Let 
that be a lesson to you!" His two other 
renditions were "The Bronco that Would- 
n't be Busted" and "How Samson Carried 
Away the Gates of Gaza." The latter 
was especially pleasing since the com- 
pany joined in on the responses. It was 
noticed later that Mr. Lindsay had made 
up several of the choruses while chanting 
the piece. 

After over two hours of pleasure, the 
gathering was broken up with everyone 
expressing their sincere appreciation for 
the splendid opportunity of meeting one j t \ )e vocational education, Ian.!

Out of the very mists of corruption

lectual stagnation into which our student

to do so, it might be suggested that the

Furthermore, refusing to look at the

"Ignorance of self, both higher anil 
lower, inevitably means ignorant e of 
human nature in general, often with 
Sentimental and wishy-washy theories in 

regard to the 'trust' are owe to all and 

suntlrx ami my point is, not that 

men never repent for a lew do but 
that creatures, supposed to be human, 
are capable of conduct which is worse 
than that usually attributed to lientls 
in hell. To proce e d On any other theory; 
tO pretend, as many tlo 'as Kousse.ui tlitl , 

that man that is to any, the pe r sonality 
is inherently good, is to shut one's ayes 

to all the lessons of history; it is both 

stupid and wricked. 

"It is extraordinary, isitnot," now 

interjec t ed, "that war, which obviously 

arouses the worst in some men, should 
arouse the best and noblest in Others!" 

"I do not think it extraordinary,'' 

answered. "War is a spiritual reality, — 
an expression on the physical plane of the 
ultimate truth of life; for manifestation 

necessitates duality, and is in c o n c ei vable 

without it, and duality means the exist 
erne of polar opposites, which must be 
come more extreme in difference, the 

further spiiit descenda into Matter, or 

the further the world of manifestation 
b ecomes removed from its divine Source. 
The Master, being closer to that Source 
than any other achievement of the present 
evolutionary process; being, as it were, 
the embodiment of the spiritual |M>lc, 
plus the self -consciousness and wisdom 
and power which he has wrested from his 
experience of manifested life, the Master, 
in the nature of things, is a supreme ex 
pression of the warrior spirit, |XT|>etually 
at war with every spiritual perversion, 
with every creature and influence whose 
tendency is toward evil. He announced 
then that, at the time of his next coming, 
the Destroyer aspect of his nature would 
be predominant, as in the words: 'When 
the Son of man shall come in his glory . . . 
then shall he say also unto them on the 
left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, 
into everlasting fire, prepared for the 
devil and his angels.' 'The wrath of the 
Lamb' can be as terrible as his beauty. 

"Just as Ghrist, therefore, by his mere 
presence among men, bad the ctfei t of 
separating the sheep from the goats, long 
before the final separation, so War, which, 
as I have said, is an expression on the 
physical plane of the ultimate truth of 
life, War inevitably arouses the worst in 
some men and the best in Others, the 
worst, in those who follow after t In- 
scribes and Pharisees, after Judas, Pilate, 
Herod, Caiaphas and the rest; the beat, 
in those who have something in them, 
no matter how deeply hidden, of tin- 
generosity, self forgetfulness, and courage, 
which the apostles clearly possessed, in 
spite of their initial cowardice and dis 
loyalty, their stupidities and many 
limitations. Those who say that the ejfert 
of War is evil, and who refuse to see in il 
g process of spiritual 'forcing,' should, if 
logical, also regard the incarnation of 
Christ as a great misfortune for mankind. 

"Nothing is clear," commented, 

"to those who do not want to understand. 
People have an astonishing ability to 
shut their minds when they wish to pre- 
serve their prejudices, or what they 
regard as their self interest, as the case 
may be. It is certain, however, that we 
should learn to see life as a whole, and 
that the man who insists ujkjii seeing 
nothing but good, is just as foolish as tin- 
man who insists upon seeing nothing but 
evil. 1 believe that this world is only a 
shallow of the real world, and I think 
that by brooding on what is brightest 
and most generous in this world, the 
beauty and bounty and the majesty of 
the real world shine in upon the soul. Let 
us apply that to War; let us brood upon 
what War reveals of the beauty, gener- 
osity, nobility, devotion, splendour that, 
as a rule, in times of peace, lie dormant 
and unproductive in human nature."

The freshmen easily defeated Palmer

rhythm, "The Swan and the Moon," 

"The Virginian* are Coming Again," 
and "The Chipmunk" illustrated the 
poet's unique idea of dancing to poetiv. 

"The Chipmunk," which the author de 

•cribed .is "a trine written in the chip 

inunk language," was especially well 

Mi. Lindsay then read a p.ui of the 

prelate to "Hob Tavlor's Hiitbilav" ill 
praise of the "fiddling governor of Ten 
iiesscc " The next, "In Memory of My 

Friend Hoyce Kilmer, Poet and Soldier," 

had a musical rhythm of bells which was 
made even more evident through the 
poet's interpretation. "The Santa lu- 
ll ail A lluinorescpie" gave a vivid 
picture of modern America touring the 
loiintrv. by automobile. In two parts, 
"In Which B Racing Auto Comes from 
the Last" and "In Which Autos 

Pasa Westward," the author described 

the drowsy prairies of Kansas broken by 
the incessant stream of noisy cars with 
theil various horns. 

Introducing them by remarks upon 

"Uncle Tom's Cabin," Mi. Lindsay rend 

two poems ol "The Booker T. Washing- 
ton Trilogy," "Simon Legree A Negro 
Sermon" and "John Hrown." In the 
last, the |HH-t proved how well he tarried 
his a u d ien ce into the spirit ol his chant 
ing by virtually compelling their response 
in singing phrases with him. 

"The Sea Ser|H-nt Chantey" seenietl 
well suited to sailors, ships, and seas. 
From this salty atmosphere, Mr. Lindsay 
turned to a whimsical interpretation of 
a boyish interest in "John L. Sullivan, 
the Strong Boy of Boston," making an 
interesting comparison between events 
of important e ami the things that young- 
sters remember. 

To close his program the poet reatl his 
well known "In I'raise of Johnny Apple 

seed." 'This poem, in three parts "Over 
the Appalachian Barricade, The In- 
dians Worship Him, but He Hen us 
On," ami "Johnny Appleseed's ( )ld Age," 
tell the story of John Chapman who 
wandered through the United States 
planting orchards. 

Following the recital Vachel Lindsay 
•mi the guest of the Lnglish department 
at a dinner given in his honor at tin- 
Da veil port Inn. Members of the (acuity 

and senior Lnglish majors enjoyed Mr. 

Lindsays' informal reading of otheis ol 

his poems during a delightful evening.

long shots repeatedly and scoring only 

on fouls. 

Thereafter things « I i < 1 not work so well 
for the Zebras. Stanisiewski, looming 
threat of the initial period, was guarded 

more closely, tims being compelled to 

resort to hasty tosses at the basket with 
a resultant loss of accuracy. Wells 
opened the ■coring for Springfield with a 

free shot. I'olen, Springfield captain, 
added two more points to the mounting 

score, llouran, Zebra guard, attempted 

a long shot. The leather went in the 
basket, rolled around the hoop several 
times while the onlookers held their 
breath, and thin, due to some freak ol 

fate, rolled out again. Crutch added 
another point to Springfield's total, 

making the srore at the end of the half 
a 7-7 tie. The Hay Staters were unable 

to score during the entire quart) r. 

Capt. St.uii iewski drew first blood in 
the next period, when he took advantage 
of a foul to give the home team a one 
point lead. A basket by I'oten, a free 
to^s by Foley, another kmg shot by 
I'oten, and a follow in by Crutch placed 

Springfield on tin- heavy end of a 13-8 

score at the end of the third period.

In the fourth period, the Zebras again

by netting the ball only to be answered 
by Foley who sank a long shot which 

scarcely touched the hoop. I'oten again 
added a double decker to the Springfield 

score. When the final gUfl went otl 

Springfield was leading the State College 

by a 17-12 score. 

Capt. I'oten, Springfield guard, was 
high scorer of the name with nine points. 
Capt. Stanisiewski, Zebra forward, was 
next with seven points, llouran and

authority," stated Mr. Williams. A man 

often accepts materialism simply because 

someone else does. This man follows the 
mob, the mob follows a leader, and the 
leader is a man of personality. It we 
must follow the mob, Mr. Williams con- 
tinued, let us at least follow those men 
most capable of Judging. And the real 
thinkers are not materialists. The second 

argument against materialism is that it 

is a metaphor. All reality is likened 
unto a machine bv the materialist. Hut

when one- asks the question, "Who was

with a vktrola rendition of the Prelude 
of Lohengrin. Professor God ding ex- 
plained that this famous prelude describes 
the descent of the ('.rail and prepares tin 
audience for what is to follow. He then 
told portions of the Opera story and 
played victrola selections of the o|x-ra's 
well known pieces. One of tin- most 
famous arias in opera, Elsa's Preum was 
reproduced. This sour prophesies her 
rescue by an unknown knight from the 
judgment that she had killed Godfrey. 
The knight appeared drawn in a swan 
boat, and the audience heard a rendition 
of the well known Svnn Son^. The knight 
is victorious, wills the hand of Lisa and 
begs a strange request that she ask not 
his name. A few records of the chorus 
singing in the wedding procession inter- 
preted act two. The last act took place 
in the bridal chamber and one of its 
famous pieces. The Bridal Chorus, was 
rendered on the \ictrola. The doubting 
Elm breaks her husband's request and 
asks his name and parentage. Lohengrin, 
in a famous operatic song, which was 
reproduced, revealed his identity and 
departed as he had arrived in the swan 
boat .

of the Assembly, with representatives 

from tin- most remote nations of the

Arrangements for the screening of the 

films for the college were made by Dean

Just at present there seems io be an increasing rumble <»f discontent against the 
restraint of liberality in the educational facilities open to the students of this college. 

(It is nut certain, yet, whether this dissatisfaction is widespread or whether a small 
group lias become more outspoken in its opinions. I 

For a number of yean classes have complained of the utter futility of the required 
courses in Public Speaking (Eng..28, 2t> and 30), a complaint not entire-Is lacking 
in reason. In our opinion these courses have been of little value, not only because of 
the shortness ot class time, but also because of the way in which they were organized 
and Conducted. The prolessors, usually, considered the courses of little value as a 
means of teaching public speaking and contented themselves with assigning plays to 
be read, giving "s|>ot" passage quizzes, and seeing that each member of the class 
made about three three -minute speeches e.i h term. Or they went to the other ex- 
treme and required, every week, a ten minute speech from every member of the 
class provided he had memorized, word for word, an outline of what he had to sa\. 
By neither of these means did the student learn much, if anything, of the art of public 
■pe akin g. 

Some yearsago, one prol'ei-sor recognizing, as did Ida colleagues, the inadequacy of 
his course substituted a system of writing appreciative essays on assigned readings 
and made no pretense of teaching public speaking. Needless to say this was too radical 
an innovation and the course was soon restored to its old sterility and each student 
received one < reilit and nothing of worth. 

At the present time a third method of conducting the course is lieing tried; and, 
in so far as the editor can judge, rather adequately effecting the purpose for which 
the Courses were originally conceived. Each week a short play is produced by several 
members of the (lass while those who do not take part watch the performance so that 
they may make brief speeches in criticism of the various phases of acting and pre 
m ntinent. The course is arranged so that each member of the class has several 
functions to perform each term; he must play one leading role, one minor part, direct 
a play, and make several criticisms of the work of others. The students coach them- 
selves and give their own interpretations without interference from the instructor. 
If the class critics find any faults the person directing has to provide justification for 
the way in which the play was prod uc ed. Although there is not too great an abandon 
in the love scenes, the students enjoy the course and obtain the self-confidence 
■Coded in ■peaking before a group. Intelligence and confidence in one's own voice 
and ability .ire the requisites of pulilii speaking, and any course which can offer 
these two latter is fulfilling the purpose of an elementary course in public speaking. 

We have taken this sp.n e to show that, while there is reason for the present pro- 
test against lack of liberality in our curriculum, there is some progress being made; 
progress that will be better aided by helpful criticism than by satirical outbursts. 


Next Saturday there will be I large group of alumni on campus to attend the fra- 
ternity banquets in the evening. Aside from a hockey game, there is nothing other 
than the banquets to attract the alumni; the interfraternity sing has been postponed 
to March 1. While this sing would probably draw no more alumni, it is something 
else for them to do, The only proper time for the interfraternity sing is on the after- 
noon of the banquets, as it was in 1928 and before. 

Furthermore, we bold that there should be a definite program for the (lay of the 
banquets, this da) to be known as Fraternity Day. The home athletic program for 

thi> yen is a good one for Fraternity Day. Basketball on Friday night and hockey 

Saturday afternoon gives the alumni an opport unit y to SBC both winter sport teams 
in ad ion. Other than the lux key game, a full and interesting program could be 
arranged for the alumni on Saturday. In the morning, we advocate .in alumni fra- 
ternity conference, comprised of alumni representatives of each fraternity and meet- 
in. with the officers of the undergraduate Interfraternity Conference to discuss 
broad aspects ol fraternity life At noon, there could be departmental lunches for 
the alumni. The afternoon and evening would be taken up with the hockey game, 

the interfraternity sing, and the banquets, 

The program we have outlined is for the alumni. By it. the) would have other than 

fraternity interests to attract them to the campus. Fraternity Day would be a winter 
home-coming day. We suggest that the Interfraternity Conference co-operate with 
the Alumni - to decide upon plans for an annual Fraternity Day. 

Oh Yeah 

In order that the Collegia* Hoard may 
see just how good it can be we offer here 
I bit based on samples of its best work. 
First we turn the spotlight on our brother 


Ye Querist felt a few faint qualms w hen 
he rapped on the portal of Hades and 
sought an interview with Pluto to get his 
ideas on things in general and, if possible, 
be invited to partake of gentleman's 
tar-famed mineral water, if he could be 
persuaded to give some away. "Is it a> 
hot as this all the time?" asked Ye 
Querist meanwhile gazing at the Hour 
and wishing that he could remember 
what be had wanted to ask. Pluto put his 
feet on the desk and Ye Querist felt more 
at ease. "Usually hotter, we have only 
L'.'i million b.t.u. today, we generally have 
50 million." Ye Querist would have liked 
to pursue the topic further but he could 
not quite remember what a b.t.u. was; 
either a butterfly or a unit of blase-ness, 
he wasn't sure; so he asked, "What 

shall we do with the unemployed?" 

"Send them to me," said Pluto, "I'll 
take > are of them." 

And now a bit from one of our editorial 

Let's co-operate. The singing in some 
of our morning (Impels has been of an 
unusually low order; and we (Might to 
realize that the singing at the games can 
never be good unless we practise. If 
everyone would be willing to give up ten 
minutes of his Study time during morning 
Chapels our singing could be much im- 
proved and the College would be proud 
of its singing. It may seem strange to 
sing football songs during the winter but 
what we need is not songs but practise 
in singing and time is merely relative 
anv wav . 

Whereupon we see what a sports 
editor can do with a report of a game as 
he finds it in the I'nion. 

Playing before a capacity audience, 
last Sunday evening, the Zebra five 
rallied to take a hard-fought game from 
the Adelphian quintet. The home quintet 
Open ed the scoring alter two minutes of 
despera te playing and shooting by a 

backhand shot by ('apt. Smith which 
sent the leather through the netting 
making the score 2-i) in favor of Adelphian 
College. Immediately after the toss-up 
"Kalphie" Kneeland, midget forward of 
the Zebras, Hipped the onion through the 
south basket to make the score 2-all. 
"Jack" Foley, star member of last year's 
"Stars in Stripes" put the State aggre- 
gation in the lead by sinking two foul 
shots. (Oh you finish this; we can't 
count higher than four.) 


During the past few weeks, several communications too long for publication, have 
been submitted to us. Two of these have been printed. W'e acknowledge the receipt 
of another, .in excellent reph to M,. Fisher's letter of the past two weeks. Lack of 

space prevents our printing this letter, though we recognise its worth. We would 
1 k ' ' l!l attention to the statement which has appeared at the top of our com- 
munication column: "Communication^ must be restricted to BOO words." In general, 
half of this qUOU IS adequate to state one's views. 

"" •'" '*■ primarily, a newspaper, and we do Our best to attain the standards 

of a news organ, As a newspaper, we cannot sacrifice news to the cause of ve r bose 

communications, meritorious though they may be. We do not mean to discourage 
communications: we hold that the CoUegian is the be.-t and onlv place in which to

There seems to be something queer 
with most people; we heard almost every- 
one say, "This Aggie Revue is even 
worse than last year's"; yet if our memory 
is at all dependable there was a great de.d 
more laughter than in the last two revues 
put together. Of course, the way "Ed"

)])e Scribe 

Who is there who has not walked 
through the Square down town on a fair 
evening and has not noticed the repre- 
sentative of the law standing on the 
corner? Ye Scribe has often wondered 
as he walked by who the Chief of Police 
was and what he thought about the 
Students of the town. Several times lie 
meant to ask but something always 
seemed to hold him back. Finally, alter 
thinking the matter over and deciding 
that the Chief must have something 
interesting to say, he succeeded in getting 
an appointment with him. Mr. Melvin 
(■raves, Amherst Chief, is very well 
known by the students, and so does not 
rejuire an introduction, but Ye Scribe 
found out several things not commonly 
know n. 

"How long have you been serving the 
town of Amherst as Chief of Police?" 
began Ye Scribe. 

"Thirty-seven years," was the answer. 
"For eighteen years 1 took care of all the 
police work alone. At the present time 
I have two men to help me. One of them 
acts as a motorcycle officer." 

"Is your traffic problem very serious 
in this town at any time?" pursued Ye 

"Only in summer and when there are 
big games at the colleges. Summer 
traffic is very heavy and causes not a 
little trouble." 

"Do the students who own cars bother 
vou to anv extent?" 

"A little. The worst thing about them 
is that they like to drive too fast. I 
think your college would be better off if 
the students were forbidden to have cars 
like at Amherst. The boys are sent to 
college to work and Study, but if they 
have cars they are tempted to use them 
and go out more than ever." 

"Where does most of the student 
trouble come from? ' asked Ye Scribe. 

"If you mean in what manner are they 
most troublesome, I should say that it 
was in making noise and disturbing the 
peace. We do have some trouble with 
drunken students but most of the time 
they are taken care of by their own 
crowd. They usuallv have Iriends along 
who are sober enough to watch out tor 

"How is the prohibition situation in 
this town?' 

"It's well known that there are several 
places that make moo n shi ne and home 
brew but we cannot raid them unless we 
have positive pnxif that they have made 
a sale. One must be very, careful now 
about raids." 

"What is your opinion of the students 
of this town, in general?" was Ye Si ribe's 
last question. 

"They're all right as a whole. I have 
treated them fairly well and. g ener ally, 
they have used me well, too."

Cured a win lor his team over the MaSSO

in the Drill Hall with a 10 to 1M score. 

Kneeland, Hay State forward, was by 
far the most colorful play i r on the door. 
Having a vtry offensive brand of basket 

ball, he followed the ball constantly, 

many times breaking up the Williams 

attack by unexpectedly recovering the 

ball for the State Collegians. 

Both teams, especially Massachusetts, 
presented a strong offense. During the

the onlv lloor shots for the Zebras while 
the Williams men gathered K> points. 
In this period, the Bay Staters secured 
seven points. 

Things were quite the reverse during 
the second half, when the State College 
offense began to function and "Stan," 
D.ivi>, Kneeland, and Foley all sunk 

double-deckers. "Stan" and Foley also 

tallied two foul shots apiece during this 
period. The Massachusetts men quite 
rapidly closed up the gap between them 
and Williams, until with the period two-

pushed the ball through the strings on a

Several speakers for the Saturday

Assembly were discussed and the Council 
decided to invite several noted men to

regarding the Assembly president for the 

Saturday sessions. Among the nanny 

nanus suggested was that of Sheplcy

editor of the Essi Greenwich NtWS at

was decided concerning this important

any more than any Other people. What 

the Germans call "kmghtliness," othei

means the desire to resist to ilie last

"Think not that I am come to bring

hut a sword. For I am come to set a 

man at variance against his father, and 
the- daughter against her mother. And a

Is it not rather obvious that the sword 
here meant i- the sword of truth rather 
than the sword of war? Let us credit 

Jesus with he-inv; consistent. One cannot 

fight evil with a weapon which is evil. 

Evil cannot la- overcome by evil, hut 
only by good. Though demons should 
conquer other demons, yet pandemonium 

would stiil lie the- inevitable result. If. 

in war, o ir enemies win- tangible evil 
forces against which a sword of steel 

would avail, Pom- should he before me- 
al tie fl hi. For that, eve n if it were a 

hopeless battle, would he one well worth 
the fighting. Hut our opponents are men, 

like- ourselves, men fighting, like our

human as we are, as lovable, as dia 

agreeable, as noble, ami, of course, ai 
base. But baseness is predominant. In 

a bayonet charge hate is predominant . 

and mercy is at a discount. Imagine

II it was not imbeeihe , Bill, then it was

the great lie. by which men are led so 
easily into war. Panoplied in the plausi- 
le finery of that lie, it seems to hold out 
romance- and an easy wav of e-scape- from

and While cage. "Sugar" Cain, easy 

skating state college center, evened the 
score hv driving a sizzling shot toward 

the Amhe i t goal, a shot which the- 
Sabrina goalie tried in vain to turn aside-. 
The score at the end ot the see c ml period 
stood at one all. 

Again, during the third period, the 

"Jeffmen" opened the scoring, when 
Williams, Amherst wing, tallied on a 

long shot. This served to invigorate the 
state college se-xtet, and from then on 

the gam- WUa fast and furious. Cain 

again rose to the emergency by extracting 

the puck Irom a melee in front ol the 
Amherst cage and neatly p ushi n g it past 

the goalie into the net. The period ended 

with each team t r \ i 1 1 k vainly to break a 

_' j tie, During the first overtime period 

both the state college sextet and the 
"Purple" team, anxio is to ■core, plave 1 
well, affording the spectators an exeell -nt 
exhibition of last hoekey, hut neither team 
was alile- to MOM on the other. The 
second overtime- period soon took on a 

different aspect, when "Sugar" Cain put 

the state collage in the lead by scoring 
his third unassisted U<>d <>f the game-. 
I. ess than a minute later "lleibie" 
Forest, Massachusetts wing, capped the 

climax and made victory doubly certain 
by scoring again against the now in- 
furiated Amherst packmen. The rest of 
the game was marked by the spirited 
endeavors of each team to score. 

Dc->pite- his recent i!lne-ss, Cain, scoring 
three goals unassisted, was the outstand- 
ing figure- of the game. The defense- work 
of "Art" Brown" was also attractive. 
Turner played a goo;i game at center for 

the Sabrinas. both goalie-s played well 

and made- many 1 lever stops.

strains of the "Andante" from "I'iano

In his address to assembly last Wed

scription of the recent progress made in 
education by his country. Striking a 
common ground by mentioning his 
former athletic- relationships to this 
college as a student at Springfield College, 

Sefior Aguirre gained at one e- the- friend 
liness of his auclii-nce and sustained then 
interest throughout his talk. 

Asking lor better understanding and, 
consequently, better feeling between the 

United States and Mexieo, Senoi Aguirre 
gave- the students an excellent loundation 
for the development of sue h understanil 
ing. He explained the difficulties in 

Mexico's development, the problem ol 

Ownership t »f land which has been the 

underlying cause of so many revolutions, 

and the burden of illiteracy e>f a large 
percent of the- population. The rural 
districts are- making reinarkable progress

In the final game ol intercollegiate- 
hockey for the 193] season, the- Massa 

chusetts hockey team defeated the 

Williams se-xtet last Saturday allernoon 
on the ("olle-ge- pond, 10. This gives the 
State Collegians a total Ol nine wins to 
three- losses for this season 

Willi less than two minutes to play. 

Tikofski, second line wiogman Im the 
Maroon and White, drove- the- puck from 

the- slush by the boards at mid ice- and 
scored the- only tally of ihe game- un- 
assisted. Poor ice- conditions slowed the- 
game- considerably. Slush on the sides 
made- passwork along the- wings nearly 

impossible and eliminated all board- 

Both teams played well under such 

conditions, but the- Slate- College- men 
were distinctly superior to the- Purple, 

both offensively and defensively, although

Zebras Win Over Hoston I niversity 
in One of Season's Fastest Camcs 

In one- of the fastest and moot exciting 
games ol the season, the- Zebra epiintet 
Withstood the Hashing otfense of BostOO 

University's five last Friday evejaiag at 

the- Drill Hall, anel emerged from the 
game on tin- long end oi a 19 17 scon-. 
Although the Maroon and White- held 
the lead during the whole- rontsat. the 

city baaketeers threatened time after 

time to snatch the victory from the- 
grasp of the smoothly-fum tioning home 
team. Knee-land, lighting /ebia lorward, 

contributed five of the nineteen poiata 

for the- winners and was easily the most 
outstanding player on the- tloor. 

Hardly was the game a minute old 
when I loin an, dependable Maroon and 
White guard, made good on a loul shot, 
only to be followed by a double e ounter 
for Hoston when l.owder loope-d a long; 
one- through the strings. A long dribble 
by Davis resulted in another tally for the 
\\.i\ State-is and the contest bat ami- more 
exciting. Continued fouling bv t he- 
visitors enabled Captain "Stan" of the 
Zebras lo sink two successive tries for 
points and llouran, one. B.U. also 
gained two more- points on the fouling 
sv stein after llouran had chalked up 
another point for the home team. I lie- 
visitois rallied after a few moment! Of 
action in the- ee-nli-r of the- floor, and 
things looked dangerous as the Keel and 
White players showed the-ir (lashing 
st v li- to the tune of four more- points, 
putting the Terriers in Ihe- lead. Coming 
back into the fray alter a tune out 
|M-riod, the Zebras had everylhing theii 
way. Kneel, mil and Hum. in both made 
good on loul shots, and both made spec field goals as the- hall ended, t he- 

-i me- being a favorable 13 B for "Freddj " 

l-.lh it's charges. 

The- second period opened with a 

beautiful shot from mid-floor by Lowdei 

of the- Ten iers Davis, last M.nooii and 

White center, continued his usual fine 

showing with a difficult field goal which 

caused the visiting live- to call time out. 
The rest oi the- second period was e harat 

teri/e-d bv last action and was replete 
with louls.

We feel sure that the police force had 
a Kr.ind party after they raided those 
fraternity houses at the I'niversity of 
Michigan, If the students had only been 

little gentlemen they would have invited 
some representatives of the police force 

to their parties and, instead of getting 
the whole supply, the police would have 
had only a small part of the liquor. We- 
now add the Victorian touch and supply 
a moral: "Always share your blessings." 

Speaking of the basketball game re- 
minds us that when we tried to play 
basketball as a freshman we were told 
that it was sometimes all right to foul a 
man; but if we did foul we were supposed 
to do a good job that was not obvious 
to both the crowd and the referee. (We 
succeeded in this purpose for only the 
referee ever caught us— there were no 
crowds when we played.) 


H)e Scribe 



Anyone who is a very frequent attendant at the Amherst Theatre is only too ac- 
quainted with the numerous cat-c.ills which render unbearable an otherwise enjoy- 
able relaxation. Exuberant students seem to he the cause of these disturbances and 
affairs ha\c readied such a state that the management of the theatre has made a 
request to the Senate to a--ist in maintaining order. The management has made a 
similar request to the Amherst students and becuase it applies just as much to 
Massachusetts and Stockbridge men as it docs to Amherst men we reprint the fol- 
lowing editorial from the Amherst Student of February 12. 


New York is famous for its hearty welcome and vociferous reception accorded 
the great people of the world. Hut the manner in which the notables of the motion 
picture industry are received in the little town of Amherst, cannot be surpassed for 
its enthusiasm. The cheering, especially of students, has recently been so spontane- 
ous and so genuine that the tow nsp eo pl e have remarked about it to the manager of 
the local theatre, and the manager in turn has remarked about it to the college. 

An interesting trait of the Amherst townsp e ople is that they come to the theatre 
to enjoy themselves. The Paramount News Hashes on, and a group of racing horses 
tears SjCTOSa the screen. The theatre-goer, unless his aural faculties have been properly 
inoculated before, almost gix-s through the ceiling as someone shouts in his ear, 
"They're off!" Lurid comments such as "Ciddap!" and "Whoa, Tillie! ' continue till 
the race is won, with the result that the proverbially conservative New Englander 
is on the verge of a nervous breakdown by the time the comedy is shown. Here, to 
relax from the strain of last month s very latest newsreel. he joins in rather tremu- 
lously in the mirth. Hut now comes the feature. A mystery story, and the unsuspect- 
ing hem is about to be trapped. He calmly reads his newspaper before the fire, as 
the villain sneaks in through the doorway unobserved. With a malicious smile the 
crook aims his gat. "Look out!" five people in the audience shout at once, and the 
Amherst townsman clutches his seat as a life saver sings past his ear. Like a true 
actor with no regard for the bellowing mob in the pit, the hero knocks the gun from 
the villain's hand as cries of "Yea!", "Fake!" and other oral but less verbal explosions 
resound through the auditorium. The tired Amherst business man picks up his coat 
and hat with a trembling hand and staggers out of the theatre, more tired than before. 
Such playful manne risms and boyish pranks might be less harshly criticised in a 
prep school. And strangely enough, the average student who is most garrulous at 
the local movie house- is usually modestly quiet and makes no attempt to display his 
killing humor whin \isiting a home theatre. If such restraint is possible under home 
conditions, it might be well to put it into practice here, since after all, the towns- 
people have also paid down their forty cents to see the show. 

We have an apology to offer; we advo- 
cated at a recent class meeting that the 
Seniors should not wear canes but we 
are sorry that we ever said so. Our 
change of front came after we paused to 
reflect think of all the laughs we won't 
get if the Seniors do not wear canes. We 
have reason to believe that the propa- 
ganda for Senior cane was instigated by 
the owners of miniature golf courses who 
figured that any person who could be 

persuaded to waste several dollars for a 
cane with which to bat pebbles around 

would succumb easily to the lure of 

paying a quarter for the privilege of 

banging a golf ball through a hollow tile. 

Wo have nothing to Bay about Dean's 
Hoard except that it is to be found on 
the south wall of the north-east entry 
of South College. 

That rope which is stretched between 
the trees along the walk from the Library 
to the "Mem" Building is very effectively 
keeping the students off the grass. 

There are two subjects which have 
never failed to provoke discussion on 
this campus; the virtues (merits) of the 
individual co-eds, and the cultural liber- 
ality in our various courses of study. 
(Some loyal and fanatic alumnus will 
probably infer from this passage that we 
are not satisfied with either; but we don't 
care, anything to keep him happy.) 


For several >cars it has been the custom of the freshman class to "crash" the show 
at the Amherst theatre. There is no reason for such an action except for the frosh 
to be bold bad college boys. We deplore the habit. 

Would anyone think of "crashing" one of the downtown stores and taking free 
whatever was wanted? An editorial above shows the theatre situation at present! — 
how much worse is it for regular jwtrons when a mob of howling freshmen intrude to 
si>oil a talkie presentation. If the freshman class wishes to attend a show, let them 
pay lor it and enjoy it as gentlemen. 

We hear a gnat deal of comment on 
the relative merits of the various parts of 
the Cd Ugimm (we would have been nearer 
the truth had we said faults instead of 
merits'; and we are sure that the Boiird 
would be glad to print any communi- 
cation which offered an intelligent ex- 
posure of all its faults so that no one 
would miss anything. 

Notice to Men: If you must say 
"God-bye" to any of the inhabitants of 
the Abbey be careful where you bid your 
fond farewells; deluges of water from an 
unknown (?) source have been known to 

"I can remember that first day M 
clearly as yesterday the first day that 1 
came to this College as a freshman. It 
was in the fall of 1870, about a month 
after school opened, that I first saw this 
campus. Coming up from the Central 
Vermont station by way of Triangle and 
Pleasant streets, the first thing I saw 
was "Old (dory" floating from a tall, 
white wooden flagstaff which stood north 
of the present Library building. The 
next thing was a detachment of students 
drilling on the area between the Drill 
Hall and South College. As I entered 
the grounds the class of '84 were picking 
apples from the old orchard which stood 
west of Clark Hall." 

Thus spoke to Ye Scribe the oldest 
man on faculty in length of service 
(Professor Henri Haskins, of the Experi- 
ment Station, who has never done any 
teaching, excepted), a man who has 
seen several generation of both students 
and faculty come and go here, and a 
man who has done much to give the 
College its reputation as a producer of 
scientists and teachers, — Dr. Joseph H. 
Lindsey, Goessmann Professor of Agri- 
cultural Chemistry, Vice-Director and 
Head of the Department of Plant and 
Animal Chemistry of the Experiment 
Station. A member of Phi Kappa Phi, 
Dr. Lindsey is well-known for his thorough 
scholarship and his numerous chemistry 
publications. In spite of his age, Dr. 
Lindsey is still a very active man and 
is often seen at many of student games 
and other activities. 

As an undergraduate, Dr. Lindsey was 
a very active man. In addition to getting 
through his college course in three years, 
he editor in-chief of the Index and 
engaged in other activities. While a 
student, he lived in North College, that 
historic dormitory, of which he tells 
many stores. Among these are the ones 
about how each student had to buy his 
own fuel, and carry it up to his room, 
fetch his own water from the one pump 
in the neighbordhood, north of North 
College, anil get dressed for Military. 

"There wasn't much of the College 
here in those days," said the Doctor. 
"The only buildings were North and 
South Colleges, the old Chemistry Huild- 
ing, the College barns which were located 
where the Vet. lab now is, the Physitjs 
Building, the Durfee Plant House, and 
the old dining hall known to the students 
as the "hashouse." There were only six 
men in the faculty then; all good men, 
too. With Chadbourne as president, 
Professors Stockbridge, Goessmann, May - 
Bard, Graves, and Goodell made up a 
faculty hard to beat. They were fine 

"Did you ever play football?" asked 
Ye Scribe. 

"Not much, but I'll always remember 
the trimming Yale gave Amherst when 
they played on our grounds near South 
College. Football was a real rough game 
in those days." 

"Did you ever go to Smith or Mt. 

"To Mt. Holyoke, yes. And we used 
to walk it. Sometimes we hired a horse 
and buggy, but that cost money. In 
those days, it cost seventy-five cents to

The business enterprises in the base-

large trade in valentines and haircuts for 
the last week-end. 


A few weeks ago the United Religious Council sponsored a drive for the Red Cross 
and carried it through to an exceptionally successful conclusion. In the light of this 
success, we would like to suggest another cause worthy of their efforts. 

The Woman's Club of Northampton, in response to numerous appeals for aid have 
opened a store from which they distribute clothing to the Reedy people of that city. 
This clothing is donated to the Woman's Club by all interested and public-spirited 

Every fraternity has a "Lack attic" or a little-used dose! which contains an 
abundance <>l cast Ofl clothing which is never used but which should prove of value 
to the- unemployed. A survey of the Abbey and Homestead would doubtless reveal 

similar conditions. 

If the United Religious Council should gather this clothing by having an agent in 
each fraternity and several among the e-o-eils, it should be able to collect a sufficient 
amount to be of materia! assistance to the Woman's Club. We have the clothing 

and the organization to collect it; the) have the organization to distribute it and 

the patron- who need it. Let's co-ope rate. 

And all the Seniors say, "What am I 
going to do next year? My marks aren't 
high enough to get me a scholarship for 
graduate work and nobody has a job 
for me.'' 

'Did the students like Military then?" 
"No, no more than do many of the 
present students. However, I have al- 
ways felt that I got a great deal from my 
years of compulsory military training." 
"What do you think of the co-eds?" 
"They're all right; but, you know, 
they're not new here. We had one in 

At the Stockbridge "Y" meeting held

At the annual track meet sponsored 
by the Boston Athletic Association held 
at the Boston Arena last Saturday after- 
noon, Massachusetts was represented in 
the mile relay race by West, Pruyne, 
Hale and Salenius. Four small colleges 
were represented in this event. Colbv 
winning first place, Worcester Tech, 
second, Rhode Island State, third, and 
Massachusetts, fourth. 

It is probable that Massachusetts will 
be represented at the Eastern Inter- 
collegiate Athletic Association Meet to 
he held at the Amherst College cage next 
Saturday afternoon. 

The gloomy apathy bred of exam times 
was dispelled by the voting of an im- 
portant academic innovation at the first 
faculty meeting of the new semester, in 
Mount Holyoke. As an experiment this 
year, and subject to "reconsideration'' 
by the faculty, the entire college will be 
given one week's reading period just 
preceding final June examinations, and 
seniors will be excused from the exami- 
nations in six hours of course work in 
their major departments. That is. h»al 
exams in the equivalent of two COt 
will be omitted, which regulation will in 
several cases mean no exams or just one 
exam in addition to the major exam and 
the honor exam, inasmuch as a third of 
the seniors are carrying six hour 
honor work and only two or three to

and a free try, to put New Hampshire 
ahead, 13-13 at half-time. 

Eustis widened the breach between the 
two teams early in the second hall when 
he sunk another floor shot. This was 
followed by a scoring rampage by the 
Zebras when "Bob" Hanson, on a follow- 
in, caged the only close- shot for the Hay 
Staters, Foley's floor shot also found the 
basket, and "Stan" looped a shot from 
the center of the floor clean through the 
strings, placing Massachusetts ahead,

out, only to come back strong, with 
Ferrini tallying on a free try, Gormley 

netting a successful basket shot, and 
Eustis caging two out of three foul shots. 
Stan then tii-d the- score at L'O-all with 
another long shot. Bronstein tallied a 
basket, only to have Kneeland dribble- 
down the floor, stop short, and shoot the 
ball right through the strings and keep 
the score tied. "Stan" scored on a free 

throw. Gormley followed with a double- 
decker to give the Granite Staters a 
single point margin over the Lay Staters.

when he sunk a free throw. Captain

the attempt to break the tie- and gain

getting the girls together for a Sunday 
social hour. All girls were invited to 
gather in the new Y.W. room and each

of an informal get together will be re- 
peated each Sunday and will furnish a 
pleasant hour for all girls. 

do/.en roses were sent by the

Lama Adams, who is still at the Coolcy

Perhaps one of the factors contributing 
to the success of this year's hockey team 
was the having of two forward lines which 
could relieve each other and thus insure 
the presence of a fresh trio at all times. 
The first forward line was composed of 
seniors "Dick" Davis at center-ice, 
"Charlie" Manty at left wing, and 
Captain "Luke" Frost on the right wing. 

The junior forward line consisted of 
"Sugar" Cain at center, "Tik" Tikofski 
and Herb Forest at left and right wing, 
respectively. "Art" Mrown and "Dick" 
Hammond played throughout the season 
in the defense positions. 

Cain was high scorer of the team with 
17 tallies to his credit. Forest and 
Tikofski followed with nine apiece and 
Front with seven. The senior forwards 
accounted for a total of ten tallies and 
the juniors for a total of 5J3. In view of 
this fact, and that Mrown and Hammond, 
both regular defense men, are sophomores, 
prospects for a winning 1!K52 lux key 
team are very encouraging.

President Robbins W. Barstow of th

Chapd speaker last Sunday, regretted 
that in the contrast and contest of life 
all too many people considered practical 
and material things more important than 
spiritual values, and said that material 
things of themselves are dead, and must 
have the genius and skill of the mind and 
-oul of man applied to them to make 
them complete Initio and moving forces 
in our li\ 

To this he added that material achieve- 
ments should not be canceled, hut that 

we should attach our spiritual dreams 

and visions to them to lift them to a 

higher meaning, and dosed, saying. "The 
best life is that which hears .uu\ heeds
